Emily gives talk at Cytokines 2020 (Virtual) Conference

November 5, 2020

On Nov 2nd-Nov 4th, grad student Emily Mesev presented a flash talk titled “Systematic analysis of cell-intrinsic innate immune antagonism by RNA viruses” at the annual Cytokines conference, which was held by the International Cytokine and Interferon Society.

This year, the conference had a special focus on virus/host interactions and the latest COVID-19 research. As emphasized by the organizers: “the pandemic underscores the importance of this meeting and our research to understand the systems biology of cytokines and interferons in human health and disease.”

Says Emily, “Even though the meeting was virtual, the Cytokine and Interferon Society still made it engaging and interactive and had a terrific line-up of speakers. I still felt like I was part of this amazing scientific community!”
