ONLINE Argonne's Impact on the COVID-19 Pandemic

  • May 19, 2020
  • 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM
  • Online, Argonne National Library

Be part of Argonne's virtual audience and learn about Argonne's Impact on the COVID-19 pandemic during our next OutLoud Lecture.

From the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Argonne National Laboratory has been tackling challenges the virus presents. Our leading scientists are using the Lab’s state-of-the-art facilities and collaborating with research teams from around the country to deliver analysis and share discoveries that are significantly contributing to the global war against COVID-19.

Hear firsthand from three of the Lab’s scientific leaders who are conducting critical research to develop treatments and a vaccine; using supercomputers to narrow down the potential treatments that can be tested in a lab; and creating epidemiological models that can inform civic leaders as they determine how and when to revise public health policies and interventions.

Our featured speakers are:

  • Stephen K. Streiffer, Interim Deputy Laboratory Director for Science, Associate Laboratory Director for Photon Sciences, and Director of the Advanced Photon Source
  • Rick L. Stevens, Associate Laboratory Director for Computing, Environment and Life Sciences and Professor, Department of Computer Science at The University of Chicago
  • Charles M. "Chick" Macal, Argonne Distinguished Scientist & Social, Behavioral, and Decision Science Group Leader

Introductory remarks will be given by Paul K. Kearns, Argonne National Laboratory Director.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn and ask questions of these scientific experts.
