PNNL Announces Next Seminar as part of its Special Edition Community Science and Technology Seminar Series
The next seminar in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Special Edition Community Science and Technology Seminar Series, “Behind the Mask: The Science on Stopping the Spread,” presented by Katrina Waters, division director for the Biological Sciences Division at PNNL and leads the Computational Modeling Core for the University of Wisconsin Center for Predictive Modeling of Infectious Diseases, will take place on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 at 5pm via Zoom.
Despite the gains made in science and modern medicine over the last century, our bodies still work in sometimes mysterious ways. COVID-19 presents a real-life medical mystery that has put doctors across the globe to the test. What are the short- and long-term health effects of COVID-19, including some particularly strange lingering effects, such as COVID toe? Why do people present such widely varying symptoms, from being asymptomatic to deathly ill? How is the pathogen transmitted and how could increased air flow in buildings reduce the risk of the disease spreading? How long can the virus survive on different surfaces? In this talk, you will learn about the range of strategies we can employ to keep ourselves and our communities safe and healthy.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series was launched to help the general public better understand and explore how science transforms our world.
