IABS is organizing an update to the webinar which took place in May that provided insight into what was known at that point in time about SARS-CoV-2:

the epidemiology worldwide; the disease from an immunology viewpoint and the development of vaccines against the virus.


This SARS-CoV-2 update will be organized on Friday, October 16th from 14 :00-16 :00 CEST.
