Years after the SARS outbreak in Asia, researchers identified an animal model susceptible to coronavirus that mimicked many clinical symptoms that have been seen in humans since the COVID-19 outbreak began. Scientists have since been able to use the data they obtained from the Golden Hamster to understand the biology behind the coronavirus and potentially develop better therapeutics to help treat its symptoms.
This webinar will share the research conducted by our guest presenter to understand the host response to SARS-CoV-2 with a small range of animal models. We’ll also cover why the Golden Hamster is an ideal model to study viral transmission and pathology, and how it can effectively screen antivirals.
