Joining the national effort to tackle Covid-19

We are committed to supporting our community, both locally and nationally, in the response to COVID-19.

Staff, students and partners of Keele University have come together to help in these unique times, fulfilling the University’s civic duty and truly embracing its founding principles.

This support ranges from the phenomenal number of Keele medical and nursing students, who have chosen to serve on the front-line earlier than initially planned, in order to directly help with the national crisis, through to the School of Pharmacy responding to a request from the local NHS Trust to manufacture World Health Organisation-approved hand sanitiser in scaled-up quantities.

Other key interventions include academics conducting research into the infection, students providing support to vulnerable and ‘shielded’ groups, and business partners working in collaboration to produce vaccines and ventilators.
