Gladstone Institutes: Behind the Scenes of a Covid-19 Lab

In response to the pandemic, many Gladstone scientists have rapidly pivoted the focus of their research labs to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
They are leveraging their established tools, unique infrastructure, and diverse expertise in virology to develop improved diagnostics, identify targeted treatment strategies, and invent preventative approaches.
In this virtual lab tour, you’ll get to hear directly from scientists who are working to understand COVID-19.
Three researchers who authored a recent pre-print about the effects of SARS-CoV-2 on the heart will present their work, how they made this discovery, and the impact it could have on treatment of COVID-19 patients.

COVID Safety

The Bay Area Science Festival will manage all in-person events with the health, safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers, hosts, exhibitors, and guests in mind. In response to COVID-19, we will be implementing public health requirements for all event hosts and attendees in accordance with local and state guidelines in order to celebrate science safely throughout the Bay Area. 

The Bay Area Science Festival encourages you to get vaccinated, wear a mask and practice social distancing. Be sure to check back for updated and more detailed COVID safety information prior to attending.
