Abstract

Two studies on the immunology of COVID-19 are included in this webinar: First, Eugenia Ong, PhD with the Viral Research and Experimental Medicine Centre @ SingHealth Duke-NUS (ViREMiCS) and Duke-NUS Medical School Singapore will discuss temporal expression results from a study of the host response to COVID-19 done using the nCounter® Immunology and Inflammation gene expression panels. Second, Joe Poh Sheng Yeong, MBBS PhD Mmed (Path) with the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (A*STAR) Singapore will discuss a project that aims to understand the immune microenvironment of COVID-19 infected tissues from both survivors and decedents using spatial transcriptomics performed with the GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP).
