Webinar - COVID Vaccines: Immunity and Variants
The COVID-19 pandemic has claimed an estimated 15 million lives, including more than 1 million lives in the United States alone. The rapid development of multiple COVID-19 vaccines has been a triumph of biomedical research, and billions of vaccine doses have been administered worldwide. Join this webinar to learn about the current state of knowledge about immune responses to COVID-19 vaccines and the importance of both humoral and cellular immunity for durable protection against severe disease.

RADx: Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx®) initiative was formed to accelerate the development, validation, and commercialization of innovative point-of-care and home-based tests, as well as improvements to clinical laboratory tests, that can directly detect SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
