COVAMINF Workgroup Membership

The workgroup consists of ten influential scientists from Switzerland, Luxembourg and Australia who have made early contributions to parts of the Cov-Am-Inf total picture, and who responded to the invitation to supply their CVs to the JPND in order to collectively apply for financial support towards travel and networking expenses.

Scientists were selected from multiple disciplines in order to address the COVAMINF health challenge from the widest range of perspectives possible.

The original members of the COVAMINF interdisciplinary workgroup are allowed to claim for travel and networking expenses supporting scientific discussion, providing that the discussion is appropriately documented and evidenced, and is in relation to any two of the topics covid, amyloid, and inflammatory disease.

Anyone can join the COVAMINF workgroup mailing list, by applying to the coordinator, however only the members are eligible to claim expenses other than for the COVAMINF workshop. Non-members can apply for bursaries to support attendance at the COVAMINF workshop.
