UCSC may not have students on campus, but the UC Santa Cruz researchers have been working around the clock to combat coronavirus. Join Guy Kawasaki and team members from the Genomics Institute and biomolecular engineering department for a discussion about the pioneering research on SARS-CoV-2 virus diagnostics, vaccines, and treatments. Discover what the viral genome sequence tells us about the pandemic and the SARS-CoV-2 pathogenesis. 

John MacMillian / Associate Vice Chancellor of Research at UCSC aka “czar of coronavirus research” will give an overview of UCSC activities prior the Fireside Chat.

This event will be delivered by webinar.
