THE JOHN R. LAMONTAGNE LECTURE SERIES
Our keynote speaker this year will be Dr. Mary Estes. She is a 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.This event will be rescheduled for the fall. Please check back here for updates!

- THREAD: Woohoo! We stabilized the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein for large-scale expression. Brought together by a critical public health need, our team worked seamlessly with the #MaynardLab and @McLellan_Lab. Congrats to all 22 authors! t.co/NNjStEzutr Results first... 1/
- World Is Still Far From Herd Immunity for #Coronavirus. Even in the hardest-hit cities in the world, vast majority of people still remain vulnerable to #COVID19. % of people who have been infected so far is still in single digits. 60-80% threshold needed is for #herdimmunity t.co/hCXOPqnewu
