Testing for COVID-19
Testing has been referred to as the "backbone" of the COVID-19 response. But what can testing tell us and what types of testing methods are there?
Exploring the Coronavirus Pandemic: How the Host and Virus Interact
In a recent interview with Technology Networks, Professor Ben tenOever explained how he and his team are investigating the way host cells respond to viral infection, specifically SARS-CoV-2, and discusses some of the techniques that have been key in enabling them to understand the way different patients may respond.
Is Research Quality Being Compromised During the COVID-19 Pandemic?
It is an extraordinary time, but it is not an excuse for lowering scientific standards, argue Professor Jonathan Kimmelman, McGill University, and Professor Alex John London, Carnegie Mellon University, in a Policy Forum published in the journal Science . Technology Networks spoke with Kimmelman in a recent interview to gain his insights on research exceptionalism.
Exploring the Coronavirus Pandemic: The Risk of Resurgence
Although we are currently tirelessly fighting to control the spread of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), there remains a possibility that another pandemic could occur in the future. How might this happen and what can we do about it?

Exploring the Coronavirus Pandemic: Expert Insights on Tackling the Outbreak
We hear directly from experts on what we know about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and how it is being tackled.
How the Coronavirus Outbreak Is Impacting Research
The spread of COVID-19 has caused huge changes in how society functions. Scientific research has been similarly changed. Whilst efforts to fight the virus have seen huge investment in vaccine research, diagnostics and efforts to understand how the virus spreads, other fields of research have largely ground to a halt. We spoke to five scientists about how the COVID-19 outbreak is affecting them.
Understanding Preprints in Scientific Publication
An increasing number of online platforms are enabling scientists to share their research before it has undergone peer-review. In this article, we explore the concept of preprints.
