IDMP Program Meetings, Spring 2020: COVID-19 Research and Perspectives

The Infectious Disease and Microbiome Program (IDMP) brings together scientists from throughout the Broad, the Harvard/MIT hospitals and institutions, and beyond, to study and understand the role that microbes play in health and disease. IDMP hosts a seminar each Friday morning to showcase the latest research being conducted and encourage collaborations throughout the community. In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, IDMP has shifted the series to focus on current COVID-19 research, as well as highlight different perspectives surrounding the community's and the nation's response to the pandemic.
