    Biography
      Dr. Rowshanak Hashemiyoon is a clinical scientist, author, and consultant. Her work focuses on identifying the altered network dynamics underlying the dysfunctional brain states of neuropsychiatric and neurologic disorders, and fostering the development of novel treatments which alleviate the symptoms of these disorders. Dr. Hashemiyoon was the founder and head of the Human Brain and Behavior Laboratory in the Department of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery at the University Hospital of Cologne in Germany, where she converged methods of computational neuroscience with clinical care in order to optimize neurosurgical patient outcomes. Dr. Hashemiyoon did her post-doctoral fellowship at the Yale University School of Medicine before taking a faculty position at the Center for Complex Systems at FAU in Florida. While at the University of Miami, she reported the first longitudinal study of the effects of deep brain stimulation on the underlying neuropathophysiology in a psychiatric disorder in humans. Her work described the dynamics of neuronal activation in correlation with the symptomatology observed in Tourette syndrome, offering important insights into tic genesis and expression.

    Abstract

    With the discovery of idiopathic pneumonia in December 2019 began what is now the global pandemic of COVID-19.  Initially named 2019-nCoV, this disease is the clinical manifestation of a novel coronavirus first reported in Wuhan, China.  Coronaviruses are not new to humans, but their recent evolution has become a threat to them. How did all this lead to the present-day situation?  To understand that, this talk clearly explains the relevant variables in the equation: the science; the statistics; and the clinical profile, including management solutions and investigational agents.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. What kind of virus is the coronavirus? Where is its greatest vulnerability and why?

    2. What differentiated the HCoVs discovered in the 1960s from the SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV?

    3. What are the 4 structural proteins of coronaviruses and what are their functions? Which part is responsible for host cell receptor identification? S Which anchors the viral RNA? M What is the 5th structural protein found in beta coronaviruses?
