Event Description

Join some of the Lab’s top minds, including statistical modeling expert Nick Hengartner, for a fascinating discussion on what we’ve learned about the coronavirus down to the genomic level, and what the scientific outlook is for the future of humanity’s relationship with the virus post-inoculation.

As the former leader of the Theoretical Biology and Biophysics group for more than seven years, Hengartner is privy to the astonishing work of one of the few research groups in the world devoted to mathematical modeling and computational analysis of problems in cellular and molecular biology. Research efforts include understanding dynamics and treatment of viral diseases such as HIV, influenza and hepatitis as well as immune system modeling and much, much more.

The Frontiers in Science series is a public service of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Fellows
