Public Health England

As one of the four Public Health Agencies of the UK, Public Health England (PHE) plays a key role in the COG-UK consortium. PHE has been central to the national response to COVID-19, and has led this proposal to develop a national capability to sequence SARS-CoV-2 and use this to inform public health interventions.

Public Health England aims to address urgent threats to health in the 21st century. The organisation has been central to the national response to COVID-19, and has led this proposal to develop a national capability to sequence the causative virus and use this to inform public health interventions.

The COVID-19 Genomics UK (COG-UK) Consortium will be led by Sharon Peacock as a collaborative initiative to capture information on the virus and from patients so as to reduce the impact from the COVID-19 epidemic in the UK.
