How Are Cancer Researchers Fighting COVID-19? (Part II)

Join us for part two of our virtual showcase of Koch Institute cancer researchers who have pivoted existing research to address biomedical challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Four MIT faculty members will share their work developing new treatment strategies and interventions for the disease. After each presentation, a brief moderated Q&A session will allow participants to learn more about the science and understand how the Koch Institute’s flexible, collaborative research models accelerate innovation in the face of rapidly evolving understanding.
