Understanding and exploring COVID-19

An exclusive conversation with our leading scientists


Join us for a special session on COVID-19 with our top scientists to learn about and discuss the research activities around this global pandemic.

This is a unique opportunity to engage directly with our lead scientists, Dr. Sumit Chanda and Dr. Evan Snyder, and to ask questions and learn about the progress being made in understanding the virus, identifying treatments, and the future of viral disease research.

Sanford Burnham Prebys continues to be on the front lines of the search for a vaccine and/or cure. We are dedicated to understanding how the virus infects cells and replicates, and to identifying effective treatment strategies to reduce suffering and save lives.
