A Deep Look Series Past Events

A collection of videos from previous events in the Deep Look into the Future of Biology event series.

A Deep Look into the Biology and Evolution of COVID-19

Speakers: Emily Troemel, Matthew Daugherty, and Justin Meyer

Host: Suresh Subramani

UC San Diego infectious disease researchers provide an overview of the biology and evolution of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, cause of COVID-19 disease which is sweeping the globe in a pandemic. They share their expertise in the dynamics of host-pathogen interactions and viral life-cycles and how they relate to this global challenge.

A Deep Look into COVID-19: Vaccines, Drugs and the Evolutionary Arms Race

Speakers: Emily Troemel, Matthew Daugherty, and Stephen Hedrick

Host: Suresh Subramani

In the second from the A Deep Look into COVID-19 series, UC San Diego infectious disease researchers provide an overview of the potential for treatments and vaccines for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, cause of COVID-19 disease which is sweeping the globe in a pandemic. They share their expertise in the dynamics of the SARS-CoV-2 host-pathogen interactions, epidemic and pandemic cycles, and pathways to vaccines to respond to this global challenge.

New Frontiers in Genetics, Genomics and Ethics

March 4, 2020

Speakers: Omar Akbari, Steve Briggs, John Evans and Hannah Grunwald

The field of genetics is exploding with a new world of discovery in which biologists are now regularly creating novel methods to address urgent global crises—from halting malaria to increasing food production. Along with leading science, UC San Diego researchers are addressing critical ethical concerns that are inherently linked with cutting-edge discovery.
