Be Curious LATES: pioneering pandemic research

Be Curious is the University’s annual research open event, open to everyone to explore our work.

Our Be Curious LATES sessions are exclusive events for grown-ups to get to grips with the wondrous research that goes on inside a University. From tackling loneliness to investigating impacts on children’s development and addressing the many challenges of Long COVID, researchers are responding to the global pandemic in countless ways.

Join us as we meet three researchers from the University of Leeds to hear how they are applying their expertise to investigate the impact of COVID-19 and come up with solutions which support society’s recovery.

Explore the rapid research being undertaken to identify the best way to treat and support up to two million people in the UK now living with Long COVID. Discover the real impact of disruption to Early Years Education and Care during lockdowns and its effects on the development of young children from diverse backgrounds. And learn about a groundbreaking trial to cut loneliness and depression in older people left socially isolated during the pandemic.

This free online event is open to all and will be livestreamed to YouTube.

Speakers: Dr Manoj Sivan, Dr Cat Davies, Leanne Shearsmith.
