Covid Connections: When does a Variant become a villain?

Genomics has transformed how we tackle the pandemic. Meet the people who are making this happen.


Wed 9th Jun, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

With announcements of new variants of the coronavirus appearing more and more in the headlines, what exactly is changing and when do changes become concerns? We’ll discuss how genomics is helping us keep one step ahead of the virus with new tests and treatments.

Join us for a series of panel discussions, organised by Wellcome Connecting Science and COG UK (COVID19 Genomics UK Consortium). Based on Covid19 and the role genomics science is playing in combatting the pandemic, hear from the people who are making this happen. Panellists will be from across the COG UK consortium.

This event is part of a series of 4 events, running monthly from May-August 2021.
