COVID microgrant award

Jul 6, 2020

The University of Warsaw launched a COVID microgrant call as part of the "Excellence Initiative - Research University" Programme.

Our laboratory was awarded the COVID microgrant for our research efforts towards diagnostics and sequencing of RNA viruses. The funding will allow us to collect preliminary data on the application of our LIDER invention towards enrichment of viral RNA. Our method may boost the sensitivity and selectivity of RNA-based diagnostic tests, such as RT-qPCR or RT-LAMP, and the efficiency of sequencing of the viral genome samples.
