School of Medicine researchers providing advice at the heart of Government

Experts from the School of Medicine at the University of Leeds are advising the Government on the covid-19 pandemic, including as members of influential scientific panels.

Included in this group are Mark Wilcox, Professor of Microbiology, from the School of Medicine, Chris Gale, Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine from Leeds Institute of Data Analytics, and Mark Birkin, also of LIDA.
