As part of the drive to expand COVID-19 testing capacity across the UK, The University of Birmingham has been announced today as one of the first academic sector lab partnerships to come online.

The lab, based at the University of Birmingham’s Medical School, will form part of NHS Test and Trace, joining Britain’s largest network of diagnostic testing facilities increasing coronavirus testing capacity.
