Responding to COVID-19: A Ground-Zero Perspective from Washington’s Life Science Community

April 23, 2020, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Event Details

Is your community managing COVID-19? The Seattle region was the original epicenter and first to identify and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn how Washington’s life science community partnered with public health officials to lower the region’s pandemic curve.

Learn the Story Behind the Story:

  • How Seattle researchers were first in the nation to identify COVID-19 in the general population.
  • How the regional laboratories pioneered high through-put testing with drive-through sampling and their continuing efforts to ramp their testing capabilities.
  • How computational biologists helped track the local pandemic.
  • How public health officials used these resources to lower Washington state’s curve.
