Our popular COVID-19 webinar series is back.

The College’s COVID-19 webinar series from 2020 returns with an update on the coronavirus pandemic.

The original series in 2020 was well attended and well-received. Since then there have been many developments in diagnostics, vaccines, therapeutics and understanding of transmission, all of which are highly relevant to the practice of College Fellows. With this in mind we are very pleased to announce we will be hosting a follow up to the first series with five short 30 minute webinars, to run weekly from January 20 from 7pm. 

Introduced and chaired again by virologist and College Fellow, Professor Will Irving, each seminar will be led by a subject expert and will include a 15-20 minute presentation followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions in a Q&A session. The full programme is below.

Registration for the first week is now live.
