Live Webinar: Understanding Infection and Immunity of SARS-CoV-2: from diagnostics to therapies for COVID-19

Monday 15th June 2020

SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2) is the causative agent of the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Alongside investigations into the virology of SARS-CoV-2, understanding the fundamental physiological and immunological processes underlying the clinical manifestations of COVID-19 is vital for the identification and rational design of effective therapies. In this webinar, Lisa Ng will provide an overview of the pathophysiology of SARS-CoV-2 infection. She will describe its interaction with the immune system and the subsequent contribution of dysfunctional immune responses to disease progression. These will provide important insights in designing useful diagnostics and therapies.

Since starting her own research lab at the Singapore Immunology Network (SIgN), Lisa Ng is currently a Senior Principal Investigator. The research interest of her group focuses on the immune responses of arthrogenic arboviruses that are epidemic or highly endemic in the tropical region.

The webinar will be moderated by Faith Osier, the President of the International Union of Immunological Societies (IUIS), an Official #TOGETHERBAND Ambassador for the UN Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health & Well-being and a 2018 TED Fellow.
