Research led by the University of Huddersfield has responded to the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19 by publishing a significant number of articles in a range of prestigious journals on various aspects to dealing with the pandemic, including the safe use of medications.

Dr Syed Shahzad Hasan, senior research fellow in the Department of Pharmacy in collaboration with colleagues from both the University and around the world have, since March, published over 50 articles on COVID-19.

“In this era of information technology and ever-growing social media, the speed at which the information was traveling was no less than the pandemic itself. It can be very dangerous when incorrect information can spread at this speed. An urgent response was needed to tackle the health misinformation, misinterpretation or oversimplification of research that was happening at a breakneck speed during the pandemic,” says Dr Hamid Merchant
