I4Q Seminar on April 30th : How does COVID-19 kill? The immunobiology of SARS-CoV-2

How does COVID-19 kill? The immunobiology of SARS-CoV-2

The ongoing severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic has resulted in ~850,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) illness and nearly 47,000 deaths. While the majority of cases are mild to moderate, ~15% of COVID-19 cases result in severe disease including acute respiratory distress syndrome, cytokine release syndrome, and potentially death. But there is much uncertainty as to why some patients progress to severe COVID-19 illness and others do not. Join our I4Q seminar on Thursday, April 30th at noon for a discussion with Stephanie Langel on the immunobiology of SARS-CoV-2 and how the immune response plays a role in COVID-19 mortality.

For the Zoom meeting information please email Richard Barfield.

Rescheduled: Seminar on April 16th: Trafficking of immune cells

The next seminar in the Immunology for Quants series will be on April 16th, 2020 and presented by Stephanie Langel. The seminar will be a webinar between noon and 1pm. For the Zoom meeting information please email Richard Barfield.

Our seminar on Thursday will cover  the Trafficking of immune cells.

The Immunology for Quants talks are biweekly, informal seminars that are designed to introduce immunology and immune-related diseases to non-immunologists. Topics are generally self-contained and questions during the seminar are encouraged, so it is not strictly necessary (but recommended) to attend them in sequence. Seminars are held on Thursdays from 12-1 pm.
