This webinar from the British Society for Immunology's 'Connecting on coronavirus: the expert hub' series is hosted by Professor Danny Altmann on the topics of 'Emerging lessons about immunity to COVID-19: what does past experience with coronaviruses teach about protective herd immunity and vaccine approaches?'.
Danny Altmann is Professor of Immunology at Imperial College London, and has been Editor of several journals in academic immunology and vaccinology over the past 20 years, as well as a period in charge of Pathogens and Immunity strategy at the Wellcome Trust.
In this session, he reviews some of the research papers from the past few months of COVID-19 research, focusing on emerging lessons about immunity to COVID-19, what past experience with coronaviruses teaches about protective herd immunity and what we need from a vaccine.
The 'Connecting on coronavirus: the expert hub' webinar series is supported by the British Society for Immunology's official journals: Immunology, Clinical & Experimental Immunology and Immunotherapy Advances.
