Exploring Connections Between Cancer and COVID-19

Sunday,
October 25, 2020, 10:00 am

11:00 am

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.

A great resource for those interested in learning more about how to get the most out of their foldscope. Also provides a forum to share images and experiences with other foldscope hobbyists.
Kinases are cellular control switches. When they malfunction, they can cause cancer. The coronavirus hijacks these kinases to replicate, and cancer drugs that target them could fight COVID-19.
