Complex Disease Biology Colloquium Series

Apr
30
9:00 am

Every Friday through April, join the Problems in Complex Disease Biology Colloquium Series.

Please join Michael Worobey, PhD, for his lecture titled "Viral Genomic Epidemiology.”

The University of Arizona harbors researchers who are every bit as outstanding as the out-of-town speakers this colloquium typically features, and it is a unique pleasure to have these special colleagues present to the university. 

This Friday, the ride through complex disease biology will conclude on a high note with Dr. Michael Worobey, a world-renowned virologist who was already at the forefront of the HIV and influenza field and is now deploying his powerful genomics tools and his robust evolutionary framework to decipher the properties of SARS-CoV-2 and the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Worobey is also an extremely engaging speaker who draws from both his experience in the field and his unmatched ability to explain what seemingly "dry" viral sequence data can tell us about the biology and history of human disease.
