In January, as the coronavirus pandemic spread around the world, the UK government activated SAGE (the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) to advise on its response to COVID-19.

Join us for a unique opportunity to gain insight and understanding on the workings of SAGE from the three University academics who were invited to become members of the main SAGE group or its associated expert groups.

Professor Catherine Noakes OBE is an expert in environmental engineering and carries out research into ventilation, indoor air quality and infection control in the built environment. She is a member of SAGE, chairs the Environmental Working Group and is a member of the Children’s Task and Finish Working Group.

Professor Iyiola Solanke specialises in research into race and racism, anti-discrimination law and intersectional discrimination. She is a member of the expert group SPI-B (Independent Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviours).

Professor Mark Wilcox heads a Healthcare Associated Infection research team at the University of Leeds and is Head of Research and Development in Microbiology at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals. He is a co-chair of the Hospital Onset COVID-19 Working Group and a member of the Environmental Working Group. He also co-chairs the UK Technical Validation Group which is responsible for determining the accuracy of COVID-19 tests.
