The long-term consequences of SARS- CoV-2 infection on the central nervous system is poorly understood. Understanding how SARS-CoV-2 infection results in the ‘brain fog’ and other persisting neurological manifestations described by many patients is essential to reduce the long-term health burden of the COVID-19 pandemic. This project will use cell and animal models to investigate the cause and consequence of COVID-19 associated brain injury and inflammation.
This research project is available to Honours students to join as part of their thesis.
