Want to find out if you've had COVID 19?
And take part in a major study in the process?
Ulster University wants to hear from you as part of a new study exploring exposure and immunity in NI.
The PANDEMIC Study
Researchers from the Schools of Biomedical Science and Engineering are looking for volunteers between the ages of 18 and 90, whether they think they have had COVID-19 or not, to survey the presence of antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in Northern Ireland.
If you're interested in volunteering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Following this, eligible participants will be asked to:
- Download the Ulster University COVID-19 smartphone app.
- Answer questions on their age, health and any COVID-19 symptoms they have, or have had.
- Attend a one-off short drive-through appointment at the Jordanstown campus to take a finger-prick blood test without leaving their car.
Note: those who test positive for the COVID-19 antibody, may be invited to give an additional blood sample in a separate clinical setting.
This study has been ethically approved by the Ulster University Research Ethics Committee (REC/20/0043).
