Rapid Mapping of Regional Academic Expertise and Capacity to Support the COVID-19 Response


Attention: University of Cambridge Public Health Research Staff


The East of England Population Health Research Hub are conducting a rapid mapping to understand what academic skills are available regionally to support the COVID-19 response. The Hub is collating research needs and questions from NHSE, Public Health England and Directors of Public Health and have identified the need for a quick and coordinated effort to map these research needs to capacity that may be available in universities within the region to help support the COVID-19 response.


As such, the Hub would urgently like to understand what skills and capacity public health academics at the University of Cambridge may have to support the COVID-19 response, either through research or utilisation of existing core skills or whether your PhD or Masters’ students would have capacity to provide support as well. The Hub are keen to hear about the capabilities and capacity either yourself, your teams or PhD or Masters’ students may have in the following areas: Epidemiological skills, Modelling Skills, Data Linkage, Experience in Rapid Evidence Reviews, Experience in Rapid Public Health Evaluations, Communication Skills, particularly knowledge and evidence dissemination and translation, Applied Research Skills, particularly application of evidence for local contexts, Expertise in Infectious Disease, Expertise in Virology and Experience in Outbreak Control and Management.
