Here at LSHTM, our staff are working tirelessly to provide accurate information and slow the spread of the virus. Our COVID-19 homepage is regularly updated to keep you informed during this pandemic. Many alumni and friends have asked how they can support our COVID-19 activities. We have launched a response fund to ensure our vital research continues. With your help, we can plug the critical gaps in our outbreak understanding. Find out how you can support here.

We have launched a weekly COVID-19 email newsletter, which details LSHTM’s response to the outbreak, along with reliable news articles and resources. Sign up to the COVID-19 weekly update here.

Would you like to help our outbreak response by virtually volunteering one hour? LSHTM has a long history of staff, students and alumni supporting outbreaks and this one is no different. We have established a network of volunteers that devote small amounts of time to crowd-sourced work. We would really like to get as many people as possible to help with the production of a series of datasets required for the response. Each piece of work will require only a small amount of time. Find out how to get involved here.

We are so proud of all of our alumni working tirelessly around the world during the COVID-19 outbreak. We want to share your stories, to show that we are all in this together. You can get involved by writing for our alumni blog, sending a picture with a caption, sending a video or being interviewed for our LSHTM Viral podcast. Find out more about how to get involved here.

Another way to keep informed is our free short course. Join over 200,000 people who have already signed up to help understand the emergence of COVID-19 and how we are going to respond it to. You’ll learn the latest of what we know, presented by international experts.

LSHTM's The Vaccine Centre has developed a COVID-19 vaccine tracker which follows COVID-19 vaccine candidates as they progress through the development pipeline. It details an overview of the different vaccine types as well as the phases of clinical development.
