Endurance cycling benefits immune system of ageing

A few of us took part in Norman Lazarus' research at Kings a few years ago, and one of the findings was that, apart from overall improvement of general fitness compared to the demographic (no surprise there), he specifically identified a much more robust immune system in elderly audaxers, equivalent to those in their 20's.

On re-reading this the other day I got to wondering if this could somehow be followed up in relation to the infection/recovery rate from Covid 19?  It would seem to be the perfect opportunity.  Does anyone know how to contact him or his colleagues with this suggestion?

I did, but got no reply last time I contacted them.
They're only interested in men, anyhow.  Not like there isn't a massive data gap or anything (or that the PPE even in the NHS is apparently men-sized) (can you tell I'm grumpy).
In the dark, all views are the same.
