Description

Webinar: Viruses, Vaccines & Inflammation: Neurological Perspectives (Part 1 of a 3 Part Series)

Location: Online Via PsychU.org

Description: Viruses have been the focus of scientific attention throughout history. Over the last several months, this focus has intensified during our fight with the novel human coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of viruses and their impact on inflammation, with emphasis on human coronaviruses, including information on hypercytokinemia, also known as the “cytokine storm” phenomenon. Although COVID-19 preferentially affects the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, there is emerging evidence of neurological sequelae associated with coronaviruses, seen most often in severe cases. Finally, a synopsis of the vaccine-development process and some of the challenges presented therein will be provided. Join neurologist Dr. Gary Pattee as he shares scientific dialogue and perspectives on these topics with pharmacist, Dr. Jacquelyn Canning, and behavioral neuroscientist, Dr. Rachel Self.

 

Speakers are employees or paid consultants of Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc.
