COVID STEMCELL webinar

Infectious Disease Webinar Series

With a global effort underway to find prophylactic and therapeutic options to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, more information is becoming available on the pathogenesis of SARS-CoV-2 and the associated immune response. However, significant gaps remain in our understanding of the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on the central nervous system. In this presentation, part of our Infectious Disease Webinar Series, Eric Song will highlight advances in this field and discuss the neuro-invasive potential and neuroinflammatory implications of SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Join us for this presentation followed by a live Q&A session. Register now and submit your questions in advance for the speaker to answer during the Q&A session.
