Dornsife Dialogues: The Evolution of COVID-19

Wednesday, January 19 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

This is a past event.
Virtual Event

What can we expect from future variations of COVID-19? Will it have evolved to a less or more virulent strain — or strains? What’s the likelihood we’ll settle into an uneasy coexistence with it, just as we have with the flu? What are the latest scientific findings regarding the potential long-term consequences of COVID-19 infection?

Please join our panel of USC science and medical experts as they answer these questions and field your questions, during this live discussion.

  • Peter Kuhn (moderator), Dean’s Professor of Biological Sciences; Professor of Biological Sciences, Medicine, Biomedical Engineering, and Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, and Urology
  • Paula Cannon, Distinguished Professor of Molecular Microbiology & Immunology; Associate Director of Cross School Programs for the MESH Academy; Special Advisor to the Provost
  • Sarah Van Orman, Clinical Professor of Family Medicine (Clinician Educator); Associate Vice Provost for Student Affairs; Chief Health Officer, Student Affairs; Chief, Division of College Health
