CIMR's Dr Mike Weekes is also an honororary consultant in infectious diseases at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH). Dr Weekes has led COVID19 screening work to control the spread of the virus and to understand the impact of vaccination programmes on the pandemic. His most recent study showed the benefits of even a single vaccine shot in reducing the rate of positive COVID19 tests in CUH staff who had no symptoms of infection. This work was highlighted on BBC and ITV News, and many other online and print outlets.
