The Chicago Biomedical Consortium (CBC) and the CBC COVID-19 Response Award recipients present a series of virtual (via ZOOM) townhall meetings during which our invited speakers will discuss ongoing SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 biomedical research. The intent of this seminar series is to create a Chicago-centric forum that brings together people around the many aspects of COVID-19 and provide a new form of interaction to exchange ideas and commentary.
The CBC COVID-19 Seminar Series will occur every fourth Thursday of the month. Below, please find a list of the meeting dates and save the dates to your calendar. Registration and meeting details will be made available at the first of every month.
New dates to be announced soon!
