AtoCap Chief Scientific Officer Jennifer Rohn's opinion sought on coronavirus

While treatment of urinary tract infections remains the lead clinical application for the AtoCap encapsulation technology, our new CSO’s expertise extends far beyond this.

She has been giving interviews to news outlets all over the globe about the Wuhan coronavirus and its potential impact.

Jenny has been interviewed live on Sky News and BBC News at Five, and also been visited by CNN in her laboratory in the Royal Free Hospital, London. In the last few weeks she’s also appeared on Al Jazeera, Good Morning Britain, and even Bloomberg.

Closer to home, Jenny has answered the most Googled questions on the coronavirus for ITV News, and wrote about the importance of preparedness and learning from past epidemics in the Guardian.

As the epidemic widens, Jenny continues to speak with media outlets across the country, to both reassure and advise on practical steps to take to avoid infection. We are very pleased to have Jenny on the board of AtoCap!
