Many immunologists are looking at T cells to understand the potential for lasting immunity to SARS-CoV-2. In this webinar from The Scientist, Alessandro Sette and Shane Crotty will present the latest findings in T cell function following SARS-CoV-2 infection and the implications for vaccine development and lasting immune memory.

Topics to be covered

  • CD4+ and CD8+ T cell recognition of SARS-CoV-2 sequences in unexposed individuals and potential cross-reactivity with common cold coronaviruses
  • Implications of the T cell response against SARS-CoV-2 for vaccine design and viral escape
  • How the nature of the acute immune response correlates with COVID-19 severity
  • Factors affecting COVID-19 immune response duration and memory
