"New perspectives on COVID-19", January 26, 2021
This webinar on "New Perspectives on COVID-19" will consist of six presentations by Members of Academia Europaea, who have all recently published papers on various biomedical aspects of COVID-19. The presentations will address a wide range of issues, including the genetics of the disease, how the virus enters cells, a focus on the vulnerable lipid envelope of the virus, how to explain the mysterious silent hypoxemia that gives rise to uncompensated low oxygen levels in the blood, a new ion channel target in the airways and how to understand the psychiatric aspects of COVID-19. The short presentations will be followed by a discussion session moderated by Ole Petersen.
This webinar is aimed at an international audience, in particular researchers, biomedical students, clinicians, and professionals in the healthcare and biomedical fields.
