    BIOGRAPHY

Abstract

The increasing spread of variants across the globe raises questions about the effectiveness of existing programs to protect public health. Join Dr. Lauring, a researcher of virus mutations, to learn about the biological properties of the variants and the ability to effectively diagnose and vaccinate against SARS-CoV-2 and their impact on COVID therapies.

Learning Objectives:

1. Distinguish between Variants of Concern and Variants of Interest

2. Identify variant attributes that could affect diagnostic testing

3. Summarize the latest data on variants and vaccine efficacy
