With each passing day, we are learning more and more about the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19. As veterinary clinicians and clinician-scientists, many of us are interested in learning more about the virus and its potential effect on our veterinary patients. In this webinar, the following experts from the Baker Institute for Animal Health at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine will be hosting a live chat:
Colin Parrish, PhD/ John M. Olin Professor of Virology
Dr. Luis Schang, MV, PhD/ Professor of Chemical Virology
John S. L. Parker, BVMS, PhD/ Associate Professor of Virology
Diego Diel, DVM, MS, PhD / Associate Professor of Virology
Join us to hear the perspectives of these researchers as they address important questions regarding the ongoing pandemic, including:
• How do viruses “jump” between animals or from animals to people?
• What made this coronavirus so successful in establishing a pandemic?
• What are the advances in antiviral therapy against SARS CoV-2?
• What are some details regarding diagnostic tests currently available and the status of those under development?
