COVID-19 Asymptomatic testing: The TestEd programme (Edinburgh)

Given the need for behavioural research to inform responses to the pandemic, our PI Linda Bauld is now building on SPECTRUM's expertise in behavioural interventions to reduce non-communicable diseases and extending this to communicable diseases in the context of Covid-19.
