This online forum designed for laboratory-based scientists will feature presentations and panel discussions by Duke investigators engaged in research relevant to SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.
The content is intended to enhance understanding of what is currently known and unknown in coronavirus biology, including viral entry replication and exit, in vitro and in vivo models of infection, immunopathology, mechanisms of tolerance, potential therapies, risk factors, and other topics. Attendees will be able to ask questions for panelists’ consideration via the chat or Q&A function of Zoom, and may identify opportunities for collaboration that leverage existing strengths at Duke to address this major public health challenge.
This event is sponsored by Colin Duckett, Ph.D., Vice Dean for Basic Science, Duke University School of Medicine. The organizing committee includes Raphael Valdivia, Ph.D.; Stacy Horner, Ph.D.; Micah Luftig, Ph.D.; Francis Chan, Ph.D.; Hashim Al-Hashimi, Ph.D.; and Georgia Tomaras, Ph.D..
