The immune system fights SARS-CoV-2 infection, but it also causes serious clinical symptoms when it rages out of control. In this webinar from The Scientist, Angela Rasmussen and Ya-Chi Ho will discuss how the immune system reacts to SARS-CoV-2, whether these responses are beneficial or deleterious, and the mechanisms by which immune responses determine COVID-19 severity and patient outcomes.
Topics to be covered
- The nature of the host response to SARS-CoV-2
- Understanding adaptive immune responses to SARS-CoV-2 using high-dimensional single-cell profiling
