IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS & CORNELL NORCAL EVENTS

As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have become too much of a risk to the community.
As a result of the growing number of cases, we have decided to focus on keeping the Cornell NorCal community connected via virtual events in the meantime. We will keep this community up to date on any changes on upcoming events. We hope to see you healthy at an event in the near future.
If you have questions about the status of specific events, please check our website or email us at info@cornellnorcal.com.

Sincerely,

Cornell NorCal Board of Directors

Join us for a moderated session with an industry expert that will analyze the Coronavirus situation and discuss some of the pressing questions that many of us have. Dr. Josh Shinoff has a Ph.D from The Johns Hopkins University in respiratory viruses, immunology and epidemiology and is a Vice President in the Life Sciences and Digital Biology groups at Bio-Rad Laboratories. He will address topics such as the following and take questions live from the audience.

  • What are the current COVID-19 testing strategies being used?
  • What are their advantages / disadvantages? What new testing methods may be better, and why?
  • How realistic is it for shelter-in-place to end by 4/30, and what will the Coronavirus situation likely look like by that date?
  • What is industry doing to improve testing?

Agenda:

12:30 PM - 30 min Moderated Discussion

01:00 PM - 30 min Q&A
