Abstract

Join award-winning independent journalist Miles O’Brien, science correspondent for PBS Newshour, as he dives into how COVID-19 and the evolving coronavirus pandemic may change the way we approach infectious disease research.  He’ll chat with three researchers at the forefront of studying SARS-CoV-2: Chris Mason, PhD Associate Professor, Director, WorldQuant Initiative for Quantitative Prediction, Weill Cornell Medicine, Jim Heath, PhD President and Professor at Institute for Systems Biology, and Peter Mombaerts, MD, PhD, Director of the Department of Molecular Neurogenetics at the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics as they discuss the effects of long COVID, efforts to include underrepresented groups and minorities in research studies, and how we can be more prepared in the future for another pandemic.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe how the COVID-19 pandemic is pushing scientists to be more inclusive in human trials.
  • Explain how COVID-19 impacts the olfactory system.
  • Summarize the ways in which scientists are studying long-haul COVID-19.
