Andrea Cossarizza: Immunopathology of COVID-19: lessons from pregnancy and from ageing

Overview

In this webinar, the most recent immunological advances in the fight to SARS-CoV-2 will be presented, embracing both clinical cases relating to persons with a different outcome of the infection, including those who typically experience a mild or a severe infection (such as pregnant women or elderly subjects, respectively), and the detailed responses to different types of therapies and vaccines.
