Molecular Networks and Enzymes That Play a Central Role in COVID-19 Mortality

11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Please join the Biological and Biomedical Joint Seminar Series.

There is an urgent need to identify cellular/molecular mechanisms responsible for severe COVID-19 progressing to mortality. We acquired and analyzed multidimensional data from untargeted/targeted lipidomics, focused biochemistry and clinical indices in two separate COVID-19 cohorts utilizing three machine learning models to satisfactorily stratify mild, severe, and deceased COVID-19 patients and identify molecular mechanisms associated with mortality.

Hosted by the departments of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Medicine and The School of Plant Sciences.
