Nov. 18 Session

Registration opens Nov. 1, 2021.

This month, the selected study explores the longevity of vaccine-elicited immunity to SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern. Our presenter and panelists, with their diverse expertise, will lead an in-depth discussion about the role of vaccine-induced T cell immune responses for providing durable protection against emerging variants. 

Article under discussion: "mRNA vaccine-induced T cells respond identically to SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern but differ in longevity and homing properties depending on prior infection status."

Authors: Jason Neidleman, Xiaoyu Luo, Matthew McGregor, Guorui Xie, Victoria Murray, Warner C. Greene, Sulggi A. Lee and Nadia R. Roan.
