Viruses for Kids: Scientific Info in Pandemic Times
June 16, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Dr. Joanna Sztuba-Solinska, Assistant Professor Department of Biological Sciences
Dive into the world of invisible tricksters – viruses that have been ruling our lives for millions of years. The ancient viruses have integrated their genes into human DNA, shaping our evolution. They keep in check other pathogens, just to, sometimes, take over our bodies, and use them for their own benefit. Some of them infect all of us, while others tend to be more selective. From Ebola to Herpes viruses, they represent the most intricate entities on planet Earth, that has been recently taken over by new type – SARS-CoV-2.
The Science Internet Cafe brought to you by the College of Sciences and Mathematics provides a relaxed science conversation with a local scientist. No science background is required.
The event is <strong>online via Zoom</strong> and open to all ages.
