Mapping the COVID-19 T-cell response at a single-cell level

About this event

Understanding COVID-19 immune response

While most COVID-19 patients are asymptomatic or display mild symptoms, some patients develop severe clinical symptoms. The pathogenic basis for this difference in disease severity among patients is poorly understood. Developing a better understanding of immune response across patient populations is crucial to understanding these differences and developing future vaccines capable of targeting novel COVID-19 variants.

This webinar will present cutting edge research and provide insights from the intersection between three areas of intense current focus – COVID-19 clinical research, single cell analysis and the measurement of T-cell response.

Attendees will leave with new approaches and ideas for achieving in-depth characterization of the CD8+ T-cell-mediated response to COVID-19 infection, which will support (1) the development of better molecular and targeted therapies and (2) the development of better vaccination strategies.

This webinar consists of 2 presentations, followed by a Q&A session.

-----

Talk 1: Dissecting CD8+ T-cell pathology of severe SARS-CoV-2 infection by single-cell epitope mapping

Felix Schreibing, MD, Postdoctoral Fellow, Institute of Experimental Medicine and Systems Biology, University Hospital RWTH Aachen

-----

Talk 2: dCODE Dextramer® - Unravelling the specificity of T-cell immunity

Matilda Felicia Weywadt, Ph.D., Product Manager, Immudex

-----

Q&A with:

Felix Schreibing, MD, Postdoctoral Fellow, Institute of Experimental Medicine and Systems Biology, University Hospital RWTH Aachen
