Meet the scientists seeking new insights on COVID-19. Every month, we bring together a group of researchers studying wide-ranging aspects of the current pandemic, to share their research and answer questions from our community. Learn more about their ongoing efforts in the fight against COVID-19, including opportunities for collaboration.
Join us on Wednesday, January 13th, at 12-1 pm Eastern Time, to hear from the following speakers. Register here for your unique Zoom link and calendar information.
