8:00 AM-12:00 PM
On behalf of the QBI Coronavirus Research Group (QCRG), the QCRG Research Symposium on COVID-19 will take place virtually from 8 am to 12 pm PT (11 am to 3 pm ET) on June 19, 2020, supported by the Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI) at the University of California, San Francisco.
With COVID-19 spreading rapidly around the world and growing desperation for treatments, QCRG was formed at UCSF which connected hundreds of researchers around the world in a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative manner to aid in finding a treatment for the growing pandemic. This online symposium will bring experts from different fields together to present our current knowledge, strategies and approaches on SARS-CoV-2 biology and treatment, and also put this knowledge into the context of other diseases.
