CNAS Science Lecture Series: COVID Vaccines and Beyond

On March 16, 2020, the University of California, Riverside joined the world when the campus closed to protect its community from the spread of COVID-19. More than a year later, many have not been able to return to in-person activities. However, researchers at UC Riverside have joined the fight against COVID-19.

This year's Science Lecture Series, "COVID Conversations: How the College of Natural & Agricultural Sciences at UC Riverside is combating the pandemic of our lifetime," is a 3-part series with CNAS scientists who responded to the pandemic by creating a testing lab on campus for students; who conduct research in virology to understand viruses and the development of vaccines; and who investigate the assembly and reproduction of the coronavirus in the human body.
