The programme will result in advanced data-driven prediction models for progression of the disease in patients and next-generation data analysis that facilitates clinical insights and treatment. This unique programme brings together clinicians, computer scientists, information engineers, technologists, and data scientists.
The use of hand sanitising gels and increased hand-washing practices throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the environment and—by extension—public health.
