TNQ and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI)’s Janelia Research Campus will jointly host the TNQ-Janelia India COVID-19 Seminars in October 2020.
These seminars aim at bringing to Indian clinicians, scientists, and students current research on SARS-CoV‑2 and COVID-19.
At a time when the world and especially India are still grappling with the unparalleled negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe that an understanding of the current state of the science behind the virus SARS-CoV‑2, the disease COVID-19, and its epidemiology and amelioration are of vital importance and great public interest.
The TNQ-Janelia India COVID-19 Seminars have been conceived as a live platform for presentation and discussion of the latest research surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic in areas related to the biology of the coronavirus, its variegated impact on the human population, and the state of development of diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines.
This set of seminars will be online, in keeping with the restrictions imposed on account of the COVID-19 pandemic. The online format allows these seminars to reach an interested audience across India and worldwide.
