Virtual Corporate Breakfast | Prof. Nigel Curtis

Sue Hunt, Chief Executive Officer, the RCH Foundation and Professor Nigel Curtis host an inspiring virtual event discussing an RCH-led international study to protect our front line medical workers during COVID-19.

Thanks to the incredible support of our community, MCRI have launched a global initiative to protect our front-line healthcare workers during COVID-19.

Led by Professor Nigel Curtis, the multi-centre randomised controlled trial, which started at The Royal Children’s Hospital and is being run out of the Melbourne Children’s Trials Centre will see 10,000 healthcare workers given the BCG vaccine to test whether it can protect those exposed to SARS-CoV-2 from developing severe symptoms by boosting their ‘frontline’ immunity.
