Virtual Wednesday Nite @ The Lab

“Making the virus causing COVID-19 safe for research” with speaker Rebecca Hutcheson

Event Details

Wednesday, February 24, 2021
7-8:15 p.m.
The virus that causes COVID-19 must be studied by scientists in high biosafety containment facilities, slowing the progress of research. The Sugden lab is tackling this issue by engineering a safer version of the original virus that will used at a lower biosafety level. This new system will improve the safety for scientists studying the virus, make research easier, and will serve to accelerate research that will help to end the COVID-19 pandemic.
