Julie Messersmith, Executive Director for Research at Johns Hopkins, discusses her roles in the strategies involved in bringing multi-disciplinary researchers together to work on COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2. She shares information about  the program for coordinated response with 9 working groups that were formed shortly after Hopkins shut down non essential work and research. She also discusses testing at Hopkins, genomics work on both the virus and hosts, and  possible treatments in development at Hopkins. You can find Julie on twitter @JMessersmith_JH and more information about Julie ..read more

Dr. Deanna Church on building informative reference genomes and accelerating genome editing
The Genomics Life
by Kelly
2y ago
Deanna Church talks about her early work on cri-du-chat syndrome, mouse developmental biology (plus the allergy she developed!), her time at NCBI working on the mouse reference genome and improving and standardizing the human reference genome, GRCh38. We also get to hear about her work at companies such as Personalis, 10X Genomics, and now at Inscripta, where she works with tools to accelerate genome editing using CRISPR . Deanna also discusses finding a good mentor and a good project and how biology is the ultimate integration problem requiring a multidisciplinary effort! You can find Deanna ..read more

Dr. Elodie Ghedin on the covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic
The Genomics Life
by Kelly
3y ago
In a special episode, I speak to Elodie Ghedin about the pandemic and global health crisis we are facing. Elodie is a virologist and professor at NYU in Biology and Global Public Health. She studies microbial pathogens including human parasites and viruses and has done extensive work with influenza and other RNA viruses. In this episode we talk about the coronavirus that causes covid-19, from its emergence at the end of 2019 to the current crisis, and hopes for future treatments and vaccines. Elodie educates us on R0 (R nought) and the problems with the slow ramp up of testing in the United St ..read more
