Dr. William Petri speaks on COVID-19

We had a rare opportunity on Thursday to learn about the coronavirus from a leading expert – Dr. William Petri, the Wade Hampton Frost Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Virginia Department of Medicine.

Dr. Petri spoke for about 30 minutes and then took questions by phone and email for another half-hour.

Dr. Petri talked about the care and treatment of people with COVID-19 and advances in research, including a grant proposal he has submitted to the National Institutes of Health on a COVID vaccine that is under development. His research interests include immune mechanisms of defense against COVID-19 and enteric infections, covering the realms of biotechnology, immunology and infectious diseases/biodefense.
