Medical Genetics COVID-19 series – Human genetic determinants of COVID-19 susceptibility and severity (Webinar)

27 July, 2020

General Information

This timely webinar brings together leading world experts in virology, infectious diseases, and human genetics to discuss the latest research on human genetic determinants of COVID-19 susceptibility and severity. This is one of the fastest-paced areas of research undertaken in modern human genetics and medical history.

During this session you will:

  • Learn about host genetics that affect COVID-19 incidence and Sars-Cov-2 virulence
  • Access latest, cutting edge research on genetic variants ready for clinical practice
  • Explore how human genetic variation may be used to chart COVID-19 disease outcome and management

Participants will have first-hand access to the latest findings in promising genetic variants for disease treatment and management. Discovery of human genetics variants would constitute a major leap in our capacity to predict (and protect) populations at risk, as it would help us understand the intricate host genome-virus interactions and how we may interfere with these to slow down or even stop this disease.
