Want to learn more about variants?
Tuesday, August 10, 2021 by Tai Moses
The current surge in Covid-19 cases, driven by the highly infectious Delta variant, makes this upcoming virtual event hosted by the Austin Forum on Technology & Society devastatingly timely. In a talk titled “Covid-19: From Delta to the Pandemic Endgame,” biologists Ilya Finkelstein and Jason McLellan from the University of Texas will “explain what variants are, how they come to be, how we detect them, and more. Ilya and Jason will share what we know about Delta so far, what we can expect, and how we can battle this and future variants. While science and technology play important roles in population health and understanding pandemics, Ilya and Jason will also share what medical and scientific experts believe we can do individually and collectively to improve our outcomes.” Wednesday, Aug. 11, 7 p.m. Register on Eventbrite.
