Revealing the peculiarities of immune cells during COVID-19 | Andrea Cossarizza, MD, PhD
ABOUT THE WEBINAR: An understanding of the molecular and cellular basis of COVID-19 pathogenesis is paramount to the development of effective therapies and vaccines to help control the pandemic.
Researchers and clinicians continue to unravel the complex interactions between SARS-CoV-2 and the immune system by using advanced tools such as polychromatic flow cytometry, mass cytometry and single-cell RNA sequencing.
In this presentation Andrea Cossarizza discusses a systems biology approach to COVID-19 research and recent immunological advances in the fight against SARS-CoV-2.
You will learn:
• The pathogenic mechanisms triggered by the virus that cause damage and eventually death to the host
• How molecular and cellular biology techniques have been used to understand the immune response to virus and viral evasion
• Clinical cases of differential outcomes to infection and the underlying responses to therapies and vaccines
