The Science of COVID-19
COVID-19 has changed our world, and research to combat the virus is starting here. In Maine, local scientists and life science’s companies quickly pivoted to focus on research, testing, supply chain, manufacturing, and therapeutic development to address the novel coronavirus.

Join us on Thursday, May 28 from 3-4:30PM for a BioME webinar session devoted to “The Science of COVID-19”. The goal of this virtual event is to facilitate communication and collaboration among Maine’s bioscience community, and the general public, regarding the specificity of the virus and the disease it causes, research progress, testing, possible vaccines and treatment, epidemiology and virology in general, all from a scientific perspective.

In this informative live webinar, Dr. Norman Moore (Abbott), Dr. Edison Liu (Jackson Laboratory), Dr. Melissa Maginnis (University of Maine), Dr. Dora Anne Mills (MaineHealth), and Dr. Douglas Sawyer (MMCRI, moderator) will address the science behind COVID-19, followed by a 30 minute Q&A.
