COVID-19 vaccine development depends on identifying potent neutralizing antibodies. Recent research studies suggest that neutralizing antibodies found in the blood of recovered COVID-19 patients decay rapidly and the level of antibody protection may correlate with infection severity. In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, scientists studying the SARS-CoV-2 immune response will discuss their research on SARS-CoV-2 antibody persistence and immune memory in recovered COVID-19 patients and the implications for protective immunity. 

Topics to be covered

  • Assessing antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in the saliva of COVID-19 patients
  • Examining immune memory formation and persistence in individuals that recovered from mild COVID-19
