Program Description

The IAS–USA COVID-19 Dialogues bring together leading experts to discuss what the data and research are telling us about the basic science, public health, and clinical aspects of the disease and the consequences of the pandemic. The Dialogue series is intended for healthcare clinicians and researchers, including infectious disease and HIV specialists.

Robert T. Schooley, MD, of the University of California San Diego, and Joseph J. Eron, Jr, MD, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will be conversing with coronavirus and SARS-CoV-2 specialist Ralph S. Baric, PhD, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, about what is being learned about potential therapeutic and vaccine approaches to SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses, based on the important animal models developed for coronaviruses by Dr Baric’s laboratory. The conversations will be available on-demand after broadcast on the IAS−USA website, with the warning that the shelf life of COVID-19 information is short right now. What we know today may well be different from what we know tomorrow.
