      Heesun Shin focuses on developing and managing NGS based products for human health. Her most recent launch was the Ion AmpliSeq Microbiome Health Research assay. This along with the recent release of the complete Ion Reporter microbiome analysis solution allows for an optimized study of the commensal microbiome profiling. Heesun's prior roles include positions in the molecular diagnostics industry developing and commercializing genomic clinical diagnostic tests in oncology.

      Heesun received her Ph.D. in genomics and molecular biology from Simon Fraser University, BC, Canada and post-doctoral training in biomarker discovery in organ transplant rejection using NGS platforms at PROOF Centre of Excellence, University of British Columbia.

    Abstract

    DATE:  July 23, 2020

    TIME:   10:00am PDT, 1:00pm EDT

     

    SARS-CoV-2 virus has impacted billions of lives globally and has spurred many scientists to address many of the biggest questions regarding this novel coronavirus research.

     

    Researcher has taken on the initiative to understand the transmission of this virus and host response as well as identifying potential future treatment and future development of potential therapies including vaccine research.

     

    In this webinar, we will review some of these key areas of research and more importantly explore the science of the potential impact the gut microbiome has on host response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus as well as the efficacy of various immune intervention such as future vaccine development research.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    • Identify key areas of research on the SARS-CoV-2 virus
    • Discuss the influence and impact the microbiome has on these research areas.
    • Understand the importance of microbiome profiling as a component of disease research

     

     

    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
