Bats: Cause of– and Possible Cure for– COVID-19
September 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Research on COVID has focused on bats, the creature that is the likely source of the novel coronavirus that jumped to people in China. Dr. DeeAnn Reeder, a professor of biology and bat expert at Bucknell University, takes all your questions on the bat-COVID connection, including the virus’s jump to humans, while sharing her new research sampling coronavirus from a cross-section of bat species. How might bats have coevolved with the virus, as it does not harm them? And might this offer hints to a cure for the pandemic? Join us for one of the timeliest programs of the season.
