Science to defeat a pandemic
June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
SFNO/IENO is pleased to invite you to this event sponsored by the Embassy of Spain together with the Ramón Areces Organization. The idea behind this event is to enlighten on the fight against the recent pandemic, the challenges and successes that scientists have had, and how it has affected society. The event is designed for all audiences and will be attended by 3 expert scientists: our guest speaker coming from Spain, Isabel Sola, and two Oslo-base experts, Gunnveig Grødeland and Arnoldo Frigesi.
· Dr. Isabel Sola, group leader of “Replication, virus-host interactions, and protection in coronavirus” group. Spanish National Center of Biotechnology (CNB-CSIC), Spain.
· Dr. Gunnveig Grødeland, group leader of “Influenza and adaptative immunity” group. University of Oslo, Norway.
· Professor Arnoldo Frigessi, group leader of “Stochastic models and inference” group. University of Oslo, Norway.
The event will consist of 3 talks followed by a round table and it will be moderated by Dr. Natalia Berges, member of our association.
Coffee and snacks will be served at the venue. Free admission from 17:30.
