COVID-19, Vaccines and How They Work
View a presentation from Professor Tania Watts explaining the immunology of COVID-19 as well as information relating to the newly developed vaccines.
Graduate students from our department have created info sheets on the current COVID-19 pandemic that help explain some of the immunology-related issues.
