ASPIC Club network is organizing a seminar series on Virology, in view of the Covid-19 outbreak worldwide.
Since India is going through a 21 day lock-down to mitigate the outbreak, it is the right time to effectively utilize spare time available with the students and increase their understanding of the basic principles of virology. It can be helpful in their careers too, as most of the ASPIC club members are from the bio-sciences background.
There will be six sessions, scheduled for Mondays and Saturdays, beginning 28th March 2020. The sessions will start at 5:00pm (IST) and the expected duration is 45 mins. All the resource persons for the webinar series are experts in their domain, with numerous accolades and publications in peer-reviewed journals.
The list of sessions and the resource-persons are given below:
