Putting the Brakes on SARS-CoV-2: Neutralizing Antibodies

SARS-CoV-2 is characterized by its rapid spread and significant human-to-human transmission. With no approved vaccines or treatments yet available, researchers are exploring various medical interventions including neutralizing monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) to control the global COVID-19 pandemic. The SARS-CoV-2 spike (S) glycoprotein, which promotes entry into host cells, is the main target of neutralizing antibodies. In this multisponsored webinar by The Scientist, a panel of researchers will discuss potential neutralizing antibodies currently under investigation for SARS-CoV-2 treatment.

Topics to be covered

- Human monoclonal antibodies for SARS-CoV-2
- SARS-CoV-2 neutralizing antibodies for global access
