Accelerating Breakthroughs in Medical Research

We are Richmond Research Institute - a not-for-profit organisation based in central London. We fund, procure and conduct medical research to save and improve lives.

Do post-COVID-19 patients need a second dose of vaccine?

Individuals who were previously infected produced significantly more antibodies, more rapidly.
This data could inform prioritisation of vaccine administration.

COVID-19 Testing

Testing for COVID-19 is crucial to understand who is infected and therefore a risk to others by spreading the infection.

We are helping to make our community safer by extending testing opportunities to local schools, churches and synagogues.
