The COVID-19 pandemic has upended our lives. It's hard to have a conversation that does not veer toward the topic. So why not give in and learn some of the science? This Science Today by Professor Peter Newell (biological sciences department) will start you out.
Join an avowed "armchair immunologist" in this seminar/discussion to delve into the biology of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, including insights from recent studies on the immune response to it and progress toward a vaccine. Some questions we may explore: Why are some infections asymptomatic? What happens during severe infections? What treatments are available and how do they work? What strategies are being employed to vaccinate against the virus, and will they succeed?
Science Today is brought to you by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. All are welcome to join this virtual event, hosted via Zoom, but registration is required. (Registration Link)
