In his address, Dr. Ralph S. Baric (Kenan Emeritus Professor of Epidemiology, Gillings School of Global Public Health at University of North Carolina) will explore SARS-CoV2 host range, viral genetics, replications, evolution, and transmission strategies in the context of developing novel countermeasures to control COVID-19 disease severity in populations human.
