UW-Madison launches COVID-19 research webinar series

MADISON, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Madison is hosting a free webinar Tuesday to share how university researchers are working to learn more about COVID-19.

The webinar is part of the university’s Crossroads of Ideas series, which is typically held in-person at the Discovery building. Tuesday’s webinar is part one of a three-part series tackling COVID-19.

Kelly Tyrrell of UW Communications will moderate the virtual discussion.

“UW-Madison researchers are actively contributing to the national and global response to COVID-19. They’re helping us understand the biology of the virus, designing and implementing interventions, and helping us confront what’s next,” Tyrrell said. “And some are on the front lines. This Crossroads of Ideas mini-series gives us an opportunity to engage with the public about that response.”

Parts two and three of the miniseries will reportedly focus on what will happen after the pandemic is over.

Researches who work in pathobiological sciences, population health sciences, engineering design, among other fields of study, will share insights on their work and research during the conference.

Registration for the event is free and open to the public. Anyone interested in the webinar can register here.
