"Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Diseases in the COVID-19 Era and Beyond"
with Dr. Ernesto Abel-Santos, Dept. of Chemistry & Biochemistry
While in the midst of a global pandemic, one of the most oft-asked questions is, “how can we treat this disease?” and “when will there be a vaccine available?” We may not know when a vaccine will be ready to administer on a global level, however, the study of other infectious diseases, and their treatments, can give us an insight into what treatment could like look like and how, in the meantime, we can prevent the spread of COVID-19 and slow the rate of infection. Join the UNLV College of Sciences as we present Virtual Lab Notes, with biochemist, Ernesto Abel-Santos, whose work focuses on curing and preventing infectious disease.
