Zoonosis of SARS-CoV
February 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST
Peter C. Angeletti, associate professor in the Nebraska Center for Virology in the School of Biological Sciences, will present “Zoonosis of SARS-CoV,” explaining the origins of the virus and its transmission. Cultural practices from the “wet markets” of East Asia and “bush meat” in Africa facilitate the transmission of dangerous pathogens from animals to humans.
Scholars and medical professionals from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, University of Nebraska Medical Center and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign will present a series of lectures in February and early March focusing on pandemics old and new.
The 2021 Winter Lecture Series will take place each Sunday from Feb. 14 through March 7, streamed live on Zoom beginning at 7 p.m. and recorded for later viewing. The 45-minute lectures will be followed by questions from the audience.
The lectures are free and open to the public. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link, which will enable participation in all four lectures. To register, visit http://www.unitarianlincoln.
