How has the lack of carbon emissions due to stay at home orders really effected our environment, and what do we do with this information going forward? Can rocket scientists build better ventilators, and how has JPL’s work to address hypoxia (low oxygen levels) for astronauts contributed to helping COVID-19 patients? And what have the world’s leading biologists discovered about SARS CoV2, and how different immune systems react to it, which could impact treatment and vaccine options?

 

Join us for a riveting discussion with some of the most insightful scientists and engineers studying and responding to COVID-19 - Pamela Bjorkman, David Baltimore Professor of Biology and Bioengineering, Paul Wennberg, R. Stanton Avery Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry and Environmental Science and Engineering, and Dave Gallagher, Associate Director for Strategic Integration at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

 

This discussion will be led by Caltech President Thomas F. Rosenbaum.


Joining us for this webinar are:  

  • Thomas F. Rosenbaum, Caltech President and Professor of Physics (Moderator)
  • Pamela Bjorkman, David Baltimore Professor of Biology and Bioengineering
    Bjorkman specializes in studying how the immune system reacts to viruses, and her laboratory has recently turned their attention to SARS CoV2, the virus responsible for COVID-19
  • Paul Wennberg, R. Stanton Avery Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry and Environmental Science and Engineering.
    Wennberg is an atmospheric chemist and environmental geochemist, studies the influence of human activity on the global atmosphere
  • Dave Gallagher, Associate Director for Strategic Integration at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory
    Gallagher was on site at the White House to present JPL’s ventilator and has been actively involved with other engineering efforts and responses to COVID-19
