Conversations on COVID-19

You're invited to this special online series for the Caltech community and friends.

Caltech researchers at every level, from undergraduates to faculty members to JPL engineers, jumped into action when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Their work continues to advance our understanding of the virus and to accelerate progress toward solutions as they develop treatments to decrease fatality rates, create diagnostics crucial to controlling the virus's spread, and engineer models that policymakers rely on in public health decision-making.

Hear directly from Caltech researchers about their progress and ask your own questions in this series of conversations for the Caltech community.

Future webinars to be scheduled.
