Professor Colum Dunne give Global Webinar

In January 2022, Professor Colum Dunne, School of Medicine Foundation Chair and Director of Research, presented to a global audience of more than 1,400 clinicians and scientists focused on diagnostic technology for COVID19 detection in detection in hospital settings. This webinar, organised by multination company Abbott, was based on published Dunne et al research, performed in UL/UHL, that used Point Of Care Testing (POCT) in the Emergency Department to identify patients with respiratory viruses before they entered the general admitted patient population. This testing successfully reduced risk of infected patients transmitting their virus to other patients and to staff.
