WEB-069A: The search for therapeutic and vaccine development for COVID-19 will involve many species of laboratory animals, each of which is well suited for studies of particular aspects of the virus and the disease it causes in humans. The challenge is made more complex by the wide range of symptoms in humans, from asymptomatic to severe pneumonia, with involvement of other organs, and the interactions with other factors, such as age and co-morbidities. Research work with multiple species is needed to model the varied disease outcomes in humans. However, what makes the situation more challenging is that each species reacts differently to the virus, and we need to learn how best to exploit both differences and similarities to human responses in studies that reveal the nature of this disease and how best to control it. This webinar will summarize what we have learned so far about COVID-19 from our animal models, advantages that each animal species offers in the research on COVID-19 and why, automatic monitoring and detection of critical events, and what challenges remain to be addressed with the development of better animal models.

To view the recording: Once you purchase the product, a link is added to your "My Profile" page on the AALAS website. You will see a menu on the left side of the page. Select "Digital Content Access." There are three files available to download: the instructions to view the recording, the handout, and a CEU certificate to keep as a record of viewing the recording to AALAS CEUs. The instructions will also provide information on how to earn RACE CEs for viewing the recording.

Sharing the recording: Access is granted for a minimum of 90 days but may be extended as long as a year from the date of the live event. You may distribute the recording link via email to your staff. Posting this link or any of the webinar's content on a web page or distribution of these materials by other means to the public is not permitted.

AALAS CEUs: You can apply for up to 1.5 CEUs for the Technician Certification Registry or CMAR recertification. Please use the forms on the AALAS website or online CEU submission.

RACE CEs: Viewers of the live event or the recording can receive RACE continuing education credits by taking a 5-question post-test on the AALAS Learning Library. A free enrollment is all that is required to access the test and to generate the RACE certificate; no subscription is required. This program is approved by the AAVSB RACE to offer a total of 1.00 CE Credit (1.0 max) being available to any one veterinarian: and/or 1.00 Veterinary Technician CE Credits (1.00 max). This RACE approval is for the subject matter category of Medical Program. This approval is valid in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE; however, participants are responsible for ascertaining each board's CE requirements. RACE does not "accredit" or "endorse" or "certify" any program or person, nor does RACE approval validate the content of the program.
