CORONAVIRUS SEMINAR SERIES
THE JOHN R. LAMONTAGNE LECTURE SERIES
Our keynote speaker this year will be Dr. Mary Estes, Distinguished Professor of Virology and Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. Her research group studies viruses that infect distinct types of cells (enterocytes, crypt cells, M cells) in the GI tract as probes to learn about the biology, host response and gene expression of these cells. We are using multidisciplinary approaches to probe the structure and molecular biology of GI viruses to understand the basic mechanisms that control virus replication, morphogenesis, virus-host interactions, and pathogenesis.
When: March 23rd, 2021; Lecture at 1:30 pm; Reception at 3:00 pm
Where: Etter-Harbin Alumni Center, Connally Ballroom
