This Friday, we will have a guest speaker from the University of Washington, Center for Innate Immunity and Immune Disease, share basic concepts around vaccines. This lecture will help us prepare for a later discussion when we dive into vaccines against COVID-19 in greater detail.

Speaker : Dr. David Koelle , Center for Innate Immunity and Immune Disease, University of Washington.
Dr. Koelle studies virology and immunology, along with viral oncogenesis, tumor immunotherapy, practical vaccinology issues such as adjuvants and delivery systems ... Read more

Performing assays and testing samples is fundamental to all biotechnology workplaces, from basic research laboratories to large-scale production facilities. With the COVID-19 pandemic, diagnostic assays have entered the limelight. Last week, we discussed the use of molecular diagnostics to identify the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA. This week, we will talk about testing for the presence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 proteins. The presence of anti-SARS-COV-2 antibodies tells us if a person has been infected.

In this webinar, we will introduce basic assay principles so that you and your ... Read more
