San Diego Regional EDC Presents San Diego Science & the Global Pandemic

May 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

San Diego has made a name for itself as a region that is not afraid to tackle hard problems.
…We’ve made monumental advances towards cures for Ebola, HIV, and certain cancers
…We’re pioneering the use of 5G
…We’re spearheading efforts to sequence the human genome affordably
And while there is no quick fix solution to this global pandemic, we’re betting that San Diego science will be part of the long-term solution.

Join us for a virtual panel to learn about the role of San Diego science in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. The best part? This panel is for everyone. Whether you’re a rocket scientist or you failed your freshman year biology class, our expert panelists will break down the science for the non-scientists (like us) and answer all of the COVID-19 questions you’ve been Googling.

Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 10 a.m. PDT – register here.

Meet the panelists:

  • Dr. Sumit Chanda – Director & professor at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute
  • Joseph E. Payne – President & CEO at Arcturus Therapeutics
  • To be announced – Thermo Fisher Scientific 
  • Sarah de Crescenzo – Moderator & senior editor at Xconomy 

We are grateful for our incredible San Diego researchers & companies who have quickly worked to develop tests, treatments, and vaccines to help address the pandemic’s impact on our global community, so we hope you can put aside your webinar fatigue, and join us in celebrating them.
