Coronavirus Virtual Event Series

A novel coronavirus emerged in China in late 2019; it has been officially named by the World Health Organization (WHO) as COVID-19. LabRoots will be working to educate the community about this pathogen in an ongoing series of virtual events.

Our 2020 Coronavirus Virtual Event Series including (4/2, 6,17, 9/17 and 12/3 events) were indeed a tremendous success!  The event (s) are now available for on-demand viewing. Our next set of presentations will go live on April 14th, 2021.

June 17th Keynote Speaker: Stephen S. Morse, PhD, FAAM, F.A.C.E.

This virus is a member of the coronavirus family and is zoonotic, or transmissible from animals to humans, and is thought to have originated in bats like other coronaviruses. Researchers are working to learn more about how this virus made the jump from animals to humans, probably through an intermediate species.

The COVID-19 virus has already infected tens of thousands of people worldwide. In China, hundreds have been killed, leading the World Health Organization to declare an international health emergency, one of only four that have ever been declared.

Researchers have found evidence that the virus can be transmitted by people that don't have symptoms. Scientists are working to find ways to treat the fever, respiratory illness, cough, and breathing difficulties it causes.

You can learn more from this event about:

  • The Origins and Symptoms of the virus
  • Testing, Research, and Diagnostics
  • Clinical Manifestations of COVID-19
  • Prevention, Containment, and Transmission
  • Vaccines (host immune response - clinical outcomes with vaccines)

This free event does not require any travel, and will remain ongoing; webinars will continue to occur in the future as we find out more about this pathogen. The content will be available for unlimited, on-demand viewing. The global community will be able to interact using chat sessions and live-streaming. This seamless connectivity will be available on any desktop or mobile device so you can view, learn, and interact.

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the Coronavirus Virtual Event Series and virtual event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here.
