Coronavirus Virtual Webinar Series

A novel coronavirus emerged in China in late 2019; it has been officially named by the World Health Organization (WHO) as COVID-19. LabRoots will be working to educate the community about this pathogen in an ongoing series of virtual webinars that will start on April 2, 2020.
 
This virus is a member of the coronavirus family and is zoonotic, or transmissible from animals to humans, and is thought to have originated in bats like other coronaviruses. Researchers are working to learn more about how this virus made the jump from animals to humans, probably through an intermediate species.

The COVID-19 virus has already infected tens of thousands of people worldwide. In China, hundreds have been killed, leading the World Health Organization to declare an international health emergency, one of only four that have ever been declared.

Researchers have found evidence that the virus can be transmitted by people that don't have symptoms. Scientists are working to find ways to treat the fever, respiratory illness, cough, and breathing difficulties it causes.

You can learn more from this event about:

  • The Origins and Symptoms of the Virus
  • Testing and Research
  • Prevention, Containment and Treatment of Cases

This free event does not require any travel, and will remain ongoing; webinars will continue to occur in the future as we find out more about this pathogen. The content will be available for unlimited, on-demand viewing. The global community will be able to interact using chat sessions and live-streaming. This seamless connectivity will be available on any desktop or mobile device so you can view, learn and interact.

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the Coronavirus webinar series and virtual event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here.

  • Mark Denison, MD
    Director, Division of Infectious Diseases, Craig-Weaver Professor of Pediatrics, Professor of Pathology, Microbiology & Immunology, Professor at Vanderbilt University
    Biography
      Mark Denison M.D. is the Craig-Weaver Professor of Pediatrics, Pathology, Microbiology & Immunology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, TN. Dr. Denison has performed over 25 years of NIH-funded research focused on the replication, pathogenesis, and evolution of coronaviruses, a family of RNA viruses from which SARS-CoV emerged. Coronaviruses cause respiratory infections in humans and increasingly are thought to be ubiquitous among mammalian species. Notably, a large number of novel coronaviruses have been identified in bats, suggesting that bats may be critical for the emergence of coronaviruses in other species. Coronaviruses may have unique potential for cross-species movement. They encode novel RNA synthesis and probable RNA proofreading functions, thereby conferring the ability to maintain large and complex genomes and to respond to host or other environmental changes. The Denison lab focuses on determining the mechanisms of coronavirus evolution and host species movement and adaptation, using synthetic biology and reverse genetics. Dr. Denison has served on the steering committee for the Southeast Regional Center of Excellence in Emerging Infections and Biodefense for the past eight years. In addition, he is the Chair of the Vanderbilt Institutional Biosafety Committee and has served on multiple Government and international panels involved in review or consideration of biodefense, biosecurity, and synthetic biology.
