SARS-CoV-2 and the VRC’s Structural Biology Section
Thursday, April 1, 2021,
12:00:00 PM Time displayed is Eastern Time, Washington DC Local
Dr. Kwong is chief of the Structural Biology Section at the NIAID Vaccine Research Center. He is recognized internationally for his work defining structural aspects of the HIV-1 envelope glycoproteins and their interactions with antibodies. For the last several years, his efforts have focused on applying the atomic-level tools of structural biology to the development of effective vaccines against HIV-1 and other viral pathogens.
For his April 1 talk, Dr. Kwong will describe structure-based principles of vaccine design utilizing conformational stabilization. He will outline efforts by the VRC's Structural Biology Section to develop improved COVID-19 vaccines, and he will summarize SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern and investigations into how to ameliorate their impact.
