Our first seminar of the year will take place on Monday, September 21, 2020 at 3:30pm CST and will focus on The Biology and Pathology of SARS-CoV2 and COVID-19. Dr. Jamie Newman and Dr. Patrick Hindmarsh, members of the Louisiana Tech University School of Biological Sciences, will moderate the event. Dr. Barbara Osborne, Professor of Veterinary and Animal Sciences at UMass Amherst will share research on the immune system and its response to SARS-CoV2 and Dr. Gordon Love (Louisiana Tech University class of 1973), Professor of Pathology at LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans will share his findings related to COVID-19 pathology and the tissue damage sustained by those suffering from the disease.
Following two brief presentations, Dr. Osborne and Dr. Love will answer questions from the audience and offer an engaging conversation on what we have learned about COVID-19, on-going research that strives to learn more, and where we need to go from here in research, medicine, and being better prepared for pandemics in the future.
