DECODING COVID-19

Saturday, November 28, 2020

You are invited to join us for a Virtual Science Cafe

Scientists estimate there are more viruses than stars in the universe and luckily, most are harmless to us. But danger can come when we're exposed to a virus we've never encountered before.

The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has upended life as we know it in a matter of mere months. But at the same time, an unprecedented global effort to understand and contain the virus—and find treatment for the disease it causes—is underway.

Attend the November NMPBS Science Café, watch a segment of NOVA Decoding COVID-19 and join a discussion with Dr. Steven B. Bradfute, Assistant Professor in the UNM Center for Global Health and Department of Internal Medicine.

About the speaker:

Steven B. Bradfute, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the UNM Center for Global Health and Department of Internal Medicine. Dr. Bradfute received his Ph.D. in Immunology from Baylor College of Medicine (2005) and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), where he studied immune responses to hemorrhagic fever viruses, including the filoviruses. While continuing to study filoviruses, Dr. Bradfute has expanded his work to include other emerging and re-emerging viral pathogens, such as hantaviruses, equine encephalitis viruses, Zika virus, and the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
