While health care workers have mobilized to take care of patients during this pandemic, Duke University School of Medicine researchers have come together to conduct cutting-edge science, including research to better understand the pathophysiology, fundamental mechanisms and clinical consequences of COVID-19, development of new vaccines and testing methods, and research addressing social issues and health disparities related to COVID-19. 

The School of Medicine is hosting a monthly virtual COVID-19 Research Seminar Series to highlight this important research. Each seminar will have a basic science and clinical speaker, and all faculty, trainees, students and staff are welcome to attend this series. The series will be hosted and moderated by Svati Shah, MD, MHS, associate dean of genomics and director of Precision Genomics Collaboratory.

This seminar series occurs on the third Tuesday of month, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, with some exceptions for holidays and institutional events.
