Virtual conference, January 21-22, 2021

On January 21 and 22, 2021, a special edition of the Fraunhofer Seminar "Models of Lung Disease" will be held – as a virtual conference with a focus on the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. 

In the tradition of this series of seminars, Models of Lung Disease 2021 aims to bring together different stakeholders from industry and academia and to provide a highly interactive platform for exchanging ideas and findings in translational lung research. This special edition will focus on different aspects of SARS-CoV-2: virology, immunology, clinical development, prevention and epidemiology, and development of drugs for COVID-19 patients. In addition to live lectures and pre-recorded poster presentations, this virtual conference will provide ample opportunities for interaction between participants, both in small groups and 1:1 chat rooms.
