WEBINAR : Cellular infection mechanism of SARS Cov2 and interactions with the main vaccines in use: Overview and curiosities

Dear colleagues,


It is a pleasure to announce the Webinar:


"Cellular infection mechanism of SARS Cov2 and interactions with the main vaccines in use: Overview and curiosities."


will be held, in English Language, next 03 September 2021 (02.00 p.m.) on MS Teams thanks to the support of the INPS scholarships program.


The lecturer of the Webinar is Dr. Michele Pazienza, MS



Dr Michele Pazienza, Graduated in Biological Science at Bari University of Studies, is a Molecular Biologist in the field of Human Genetics (2003).

He used to be an assistant researcher at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York working in Evolutionary genetics and afterwords, started a PhD in Genetics and molecular evolution in Bari.

Since 2005 he is in the CBRN field and closely collaborated with University of Tor Vergata as a student first and as a teacher for several editions of CBRN Master.

In the same period ha has been involved in Sampling, identification of BCR agents and various EXEs including Live agents trainings with chemical warfare agents.

Part of some international working groups, he participated as a reviewer of some NATO document and CBRN procedures.
