Getting Ahead of COVID-19
Thursday, 2 June 2022, 11:00am to 12:00pm (AEST)
Our team here at Garvan are focussing our expertise, leading-edge technology and unique research capabilities towards developing a next generation, “universal” COVID vaccine. These are vaccines which generate antibodies to regions of the virus that cannot be easily mutated. The goal of using such vaccines across the population is to protect us not just against current variants of the virus, but also against future variants. Please join Dr Burnett in person in our Garvan Auditorium or online for our Public Seminar to hear more about her work on this project. Spaces are limited in the Auditorium so registration is essential.
BITE SIZE SCIENCE: Accelerating genomic diagnosis of disease
Thursday 28 October 2021, 12:00pm-12:30pm (AEDT)
Genomic tests are increasingly used to diagnose genetic disease and give families answers about their health. These tests look at all of a person’s DNA, and all of their genes, at once. However, many diseases still can’t be diagnosed because they are caused by long, repeated sequences in the genetic code that are too hard to read with the available technology. Garvan researchers are developing new methods to read through these long stretches of DNA to accelerate the diagnosis of previously undiagnosed disease.
Join us for our upcoming seminar with Dr Ira Deveson and Dr Kishore Kumar to learn about these exciting new approaches to accelerate diagnosis and profoundly impact people’s lives.
We are pleased to announce the return of on-site seminars. Stay tuned – our next seminar will be announced soon.
