Part 4 | Multiplexed SARS CoV2 Platforms: Future Interactions
Assessment of the Humoral Response to SARS-CoV-2 Infection Via Novel Multiplexed Assays
Guest speaker: Dr. E. Steve Woodle of UC Health in Cincinnati, Ohio
Current data suggests that COVID-19 patients may present with a myriad of antibody responses. Dr. E. Steve Woodle with the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine believes that determining the nature of these varied antibody responses, as well as coordinating that data with clinical outcomes, will be key to understanding the nature of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. In this talk, Dr. Woodle reviews the body of evidence that suggests this virus may circumvent many of the typical rules of immune response and discusses the research applications for a multiplex assay as a tool for exploring how a patient’s antibody response impacts the severity of their case.
