In this webinar, organized by Genetex, Dr. Eric Song will discuss his work showing the ability of SARS-CoV-2 to directly infect the brain of mammals (Song et al., J. Exp. Med. 2021)
This major study involved the use of several elegant approaches to demonstrate SARS-CoV-2 infection in mouse and human brains, with clear implications for the subset of COVID-19 patients experiencing persistent neurological and neuropsychiatric symptoms after resolution of acute disease. Dr. Song will also provide updates on his current efforts and offer insights on future directions for SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19 research.
