The PANTHER study explores why some people with COVID have symptoms (symptomatic) and others do not (asymptomatic). It also looks at why not everyone with symptomatic disease become seriously ill.
PANTHER stores biological (blood) samples of around 600 volunteers in the Nottingham Tissue bank. This is a rich resource for biological and genetic information, supplemented by additional information provided by PANTHER’s volunteers.
