Quizzify presents the country’s leading COVID expert not named Fauci
You’ve maybe read about him, or seen him remotely, many times, on both Fox and MSNBC (yes, both), as well as CNN, CNBC, CBS, NBC, and even the BBC. Now is your chance to ask your questions live, directly to Dr. Ian Lipkin, John Snow Professor of Epidemiology at Columbia University.
Dr. Lipkin, who has warned about the pandemic hazard potential of “wet markets” for many years, has first-hand knowledge of the origin, development of vaccines, and, of course, all the information and misinformation surrounding COVID.
This webinar will feature a few minutes of prepared remarks, along with 5 test-your-knowledge-of-COVID questions…and otherwise it’ll be the webinar equivalent of open-mike night. Dr. Lipkin will answer as many questions as we can squeeze in. So register early, and (while questions will be taken live too) get your questions in early, to Mark@quizzify.com

Aug 25, 2020 01:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Speakers

W. Ian Lipkin, MD
Director for the Center for Research in Diagnostics and Discovery, and the Director for the Center of Infection and Immunity @Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University
Lipkin is internationally recognized for his contributions to global public health through the innovative methods he developed for infectious diseases diagnosis, surveillance, and discovery. Most notably, he had the first use of subtractive cloning in microbial discovery, the first use of next generation sequencing for investigating outbreaks, and developed gene capture technologies including VirCapSeq-VERT and BacCapSeq as well as multiplexed serological assays to detect vector-borne diseases. These advances have been critical in replacing culture-dependent methods of global health management by creating new criteria for disease causation and de-linking spurious associations between putative agents and diseases. Such examples include refuting the MMR vaccine having a role in autism and XMRV in ME/CFS. Lipkin has been at the forefront of outbreak response to many of the world’s recent outbreaks, including West Nile Virus in NYC (1999), SARS in China (2003), MERS in Saudi Arabia (2012-1
