Over 150 scientists from the University of Oxford are driving forward research into COVID-19, including development of a vaccine, drugs, antibody testing and contact tracing systems.

Now, in COVID Conversations, you can hear directly from them in a series of short talks on their work, along with a chance to ask them any questions you have about how COVID-19 research is progressing.

Professor of Virology and Director of the Glycobiology Institute, Nicole Zitzmann, talks about how her team are working with other groups across the globe to apply chemical principles and techniques to address the important biological questions around COVID-19, and what they’ve already learnt through the development and testing of existing drugs.
