Queensland COVID-19 research

  • The impact of diabetes on the severity of COVID-19

    August 2021

    In conjunction with Mater Medical Research at the Translational Research Institute, a team at the Univeristy of Queensland, led by Dr Kirsty Short is recruiting patients with and without diabetes who have been infected to determine whether all patients with diabetes are susceptible to severe COVID-19 or if there is a subset that is particularly susceptible. Funded by the Medical Research Future Fund, the researchers will also be investigating the long term immunity of patients to the virus and determining if this wanes faster in patients with diabetes.
