This Month's Talk: Wednesday, July 29 at Noon

Virtual Speaker: Dr. Ernesto Abel-Santos, Department of Chemistry and 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 a 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.
