Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The situation that we are facing with the COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented. The IUIS is collaborating with Frontiers by launching a series of weekly, expert commentaries and scientific webinars to accelerate the development of novel diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines.
Over 700 immunologists joined the last webinar hosted by Rino Rappuoli. In case you missed it, watch it on demand: iuis.org/webinars
We invite you to join the next live webinars by Giuseppe Ippolito on April 24 and Eleanor Fish on April 27.

Giuseppe Ippolito, Scientific Director at the National Institute for Infectious Diseases in Rome, Italy, will share his opinion on why policy responses to COVID-19 must be based on scientific evidence – and why policymakers must invest in science to prepare for future infectious diseases.
Eleanor Fish: Global Outbreaks - Interferons as First Responders
Date: April 27, 2020
Time: 16:00 (UTC+2)
Can antivirals that target the host and not the virus improve outcomes for COVID-19 patients? Professor Eleanor Fish from the University of Toronto showed that treatment with interferon-alpha was beneficial in patients with SARS, and will share early data on COVID-19.
