New speaker series: Big IDIES with Winston Timp

Winston Timp, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Johns Hopkins, will present "Rapid Sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 to Enable Epidemiologic Surveillance, Clinical Insight, and Pathobiology​" at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Feb. 10, via Zoom.

For security purposes, the link to this online Zoom event will be emailed out to all IDIES members. If you are not an IDIES member but would like to join, you can do so by clicking here. The link takes you to a form to submit that will add you to our active mailing list.

Timp has used genomic sequencing to help understand the initial spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in the United States National Capital Region. By correlating genetic information to disease phenotype, he explores any correlation between viral genotype and case severity or transmissibility. This is a 40-minute presentation, followed by a Q&A session.
