IABS Webinar

Update on SARS-CoV-2

May 27th,  2020 : 14:00 CEST


IABS has been asked to organize several webinars in order to share scientific information on SARS-CoV-2.

As science is evolving day after day, it is important for many people to have an overview of the actual knowledge at a specific moment in time.

The first IABS webinar that took place Wednesday May 27th from 14:00-16:00 CEST gave you an insight to what is known about SARS-CoV-2, the epidemiology worldwide, the disease from an immunology viewpoint and where we are today with the development of vaccines against the virus.

This webinar is the first in a series of webinars to inform our network on what is known about the virus, the disease, and how to cope with it.
