Liverpool’s Pandemic Institute hosted its first Student Excellence Awards, boosting the career development opportunities of PhD students who could be at the forefront of the fight against future pandemics. Sponsored by Liverpool-based diagnostics and in-clinic COVID-19 testing company DAM Health, five students working in the areas of infection or diagnostics were presented with £5,000 each. 

The grants will enable the students to further their research by attending international conferences or take up world-leading training and development opportunities. Their  projects span the breadth of antimicrobial resistance, mosquito transmitted viruses, vaccines against respiratory disease and novel approaches to pathogen detection.
