Animal Models for COVID-19 Research and Vaccine Development
November 18, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

WEB-069: 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.
