Webcast: Business as (Un)usual: Scientific and Business Perspectives on COVID-19 [Day 1]

Tuesday, 23. June 2020 - 7:30

Presented by the Asia Society New York, in association with the OIST Foundation

COVID-19 has spread across the globe with unprecedented speed, reaching six continents in less than three months. Scientists are working to not only discover a long-term vaccination, but also to find short-term mitigation methods to hamper the spread. The ability to accomplish this is challenged by the fact that much scientific research cannot happen using remote communication tools. Many requirements of  scientific research, such as international travel and long periods spent sharing laboratory spaces, are the very things that help the spread of the virus. How are scientists from different fields utilizing their skills to add to the local and global short-term and long-term response and understanding of COVID-19? Join Asia Society and OIST’s Day 1 event with a panel of scientists doing cutting edge COVID-19 related research.
