DESCRIPTION

COVID-19 has clearly affected all aspects of life, from schools and universities shutting down to full scale government implemented quarantines to an alarming number of deaths. While the world is struggling to get back to some sort of normalcy and waiting for a vaccine, scientists all over the world have been designing new SARS-Cov-2 diagnostic kits, methods to inhibit spreading, and therapeutic treatments despite lab closures and other research resrictions. This webinar will bring together researchers from all around the world to discuss novel material science approaches for stopping the COVID-19 pandemic and to how we can be better prepared for the next one.

Those interested in this topic are also encouraged to join the COVID-19 and Materials Science LinkedIn Group.
