Immune Regulation versus Dysregulated Immune Responses in patients with COVID-19

This event has passed

Chapter Event: Los Angeles

Take advantage of this exclusive opportunity to have your questions answered by a top Covid-19 Immunologist; Information is Power!  Dr. Omid Akbari, PhD will discuss the clinical and immunological characteristics of patients with COVID-19, and summarize the current immunological evidence in patients with COVID-19.

Ask an expert on Covid-19 your questions on when your industry/business is safe to open and what new precautions and/or requirements will become the new "normal". How do these changes affect your ability to be considered an expert in that field.

Speaker Background

Dr. Omid Akbari has studied the murine and human immune systems for more than 15 years, and has made several key observations that have modified the prevailing disease paradigms. His research is largely focused on an analysis of cytokines and inflammation with the focus specifically on dendritic cells, regulatory T cells and T cell subsets. The overall objective of the research in his laboratory is to dissect how alterations in the inflammatory microenvironment regulate immune responses to allergens and air pollution. Dr. Akbari has a broad background in Immunology, with specific training and expertise in key research areas such as innate and adaptive immune cells.  

This course has been approved for 1 CFLC credit.
