Lalitha Sundaram and the Cambridge Testing Centre

30 July 2020

Dr Lalitha Sundaram has been featured in the publicity around the Cambridge Testing Centre.

Dr Sundaram is one of the volunteers from the University of Cambridge, AstraZeneca and GSK who together created a state-of-the-art COVID-19 testing facility in just five weeks.  This is part of CSER's wider work to respond to the current pandemic, understand it, and prepare for the next pandemic.

In April 2020, the University of Cambridge joined forces with AstraZeneca and GSK to create the Cambridge Testing Centre to boost the UK’s COVID-19 testing capabilities through innovation and cutting-edge technology. This formed part of the largest network of diagnostic testing capability created in British history, including 71 drive-through sites, 15 walk-through sites, 25 satellite test sites, 236 mobile testing units, home testing and satellite kits and three mega laboratories.
