In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Anne Ellis, Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Biomedical and Molecular Sciences at Queen’s University and lead researcher on a new study on Covid-19 transmission and immunity among 500 Faculty of Health Studies students.

Dr. Ellis and her large team of colleagues received over $223,000 in federal funding to conduct this study that will involve student subjects across several FHS departments.  Dr. Ellis chats with us about how the study will be conducted, the outcomes it is expected to achieve, and critically, as how it will inform pandemic management policies and procedures implemented by Universities and Public Health Units as Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer noted about the study.
