Recent insight into how Coronaviruses hijack human cells and cause disease have revealed similarities between COVID-19 and cancer. Join UCSF Cancer Cell Map Initiative (CCMI) and Quantitative Biology Institute Coronavirus Research Group (QBI-QCRG) researchers on a virtual tour of labs and a live Q&A session. Fascinating connections between the mechanisms of cancer and COVID-19 will be explained.
The mission of the Cancer Cell Map Initiative is to enable a new era of cancer discovery and treatment based on the complete elucidation of the molecular networks underlying cancer. This information will be critical for developing computational models of cancer cells that will enable both basic research and clinical decision-making.
