HZI-HIFIS collaboration for Coronavirus Surveys


The German Center for Infection Research (DZIF) builds a platform collecting methodologies and results of coronavirus antibody studies. In cooperation with HIFIS and led by scientists at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI), the project “LEOSS.sero-survey” is being implemented.

The LEOSS.sero-survey platform

The envisioned platform offers research groups the possibility to jointly evaluate anonymised data from various studies of different origins. This helps to increase statistical significance and study robustness. The approach drives the need for a commonly accessible data management. Virtual resources of the Helmholtz Association can be used for that. In this context, a data management system is being provided as a pilot project within HIFIS by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB).

Invitation for contribution

Interested researchers and centers are invited to participate in the LEOSS.sero-survey. Please visit the SeroHub Portal for further information and getting started.
