AIVC Event – Online Panel Discussion – “Coronavirus : The Science of a Pandemic”

New Scientist Events are moving online. As the death toll from covid-19 rises, join us for an online panel discussion into the work of scientists racing to understand the virus and prevent future outbreaks.

During the discussion you’ll have the opportunity to ask your questions too. And find out why, despite the grave situation we face, science offers much hope.

New Scientist has been at the forefront of reporting the coronavirus outbreak, cutting through the hype and bringing you trusted information at a time when it is most needed.

Exploring the science of the current pandemic will be New Scientist’s news editor Penny Sarchet, reporter Carrie Arnold and virologist and pandemic expert Josie Golding. Hosted by New Scientist’s Valerie Jamieson.

As the death toll from covid-19 rises, discover how researchers around the world are racing to understand the virus and prevent future outbreaks. When will we have a vaccine? How is this pandemic helping us to prepare for the next one?

Find out about the origins of coronaviruses, how past outbreaks – such as SARS, MERS and H1N1 – are helping us tackle this pandemic, and what we are learning about the biology of covid-19 and how it infects human cells. Hear about the prospects for all-important treatments and vaccines and discover why there’s much to be positive about.
