@ THE ROBBINS!

On Thursday, Nov. 6, PLUGGED iN, in conjunction with Science for the Public, presents Viruses: Threats in Tiny Packages, a talk by John Connor, Ph.D., associate professor of microbiology at Boston University School of Medicine at the Connor Lab. Why?

Viruses have become an increasingly common topic in the news. From Ebola to MERS-CoV, well-known and previously unknown viruses are migrating across borders and around the globe, even to the U.S., in our highly connected world. 

The continuing emergence of new viral diseases underscores the fact that humanity will likely contend with viruses for many years to come. 

 

Dr. Connor will explain:

  • How viruses are transmitted
     
  • How infections are recognized
  • How outbreaks can be contained, and
  • How medical research and new technologies are working to control the health threat of viruses.

 

After Dr. O'Connor's presentation there will be time for questions. The evening's presentation will be taped by Science for the Public for future broadcast.
