Expert Insight: Infectious disease webinars for scientists and healthcare professionals

Discover the latest tools and techniques to expand your infectious disease work with expert-led presentations on clinical metagenomic sequencing, T-cell immune monitoring, combating antibiotic resistance, and more

22 Nov 2022


Upcoming SelectScience Webinars

SelectScience® hosts dozens of informative free webinars for scientists and healthcare professionals every month, featuring world-class speakers at the very forefront of their respective fields. In this week’s feature, we will be focusing on webinars that may especially interest those working in the field of infectious diseases. If you wish to stay up to date in your field of infectious diseases, you won't want to miss these webinars over the next few weeks. In addition, we will also highlight some of our top on-demand infectious disease webinars, ensuring that you don’t miss out on these free learning opportunities.

Explore how clinical metagenomic sequencing can be used in outbreak investigations and learn about the potential clinical utilities of T-cell immune monitoring. Plus, discover how diagnostics can help combat antibiotic resistance, understand the role of interferon-expressing neutrophils in COVID-19 pathogenesis, and learn about markers for COVID-19 disease progression.

New on-demand webinar: The role of interferon-expressing neutrophils in COVID-19 pathogenesis

The role of interferon-expressing neutrophils in COVID-19 pathogenesis

In this free on-demand webinar, Dylan Sheerin, research officer at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, discusses research performed to determine the transcriptional programs underlying neutrophil-related pathogenesis. He also explores whether a phenotype likely to exhibit dysregulated responses could be identified by performing single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) using the Honeycomb HIVE™ solution on neutrophils isolated from individuals who had recovered from COVID-19.

New on-demand webinar: Antibiotic prescribing dilemmas in the face of increasing resistance: How do diagnostics help?

Antibiotic prescribing dilemmas in the face of increasing resistance: How do diagnostics help?

There are a diminishing number of antibiotics in use today and very few drugs on the horizon. This, combined with the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on infection control practices, has caused an increased need for antibiotic stewardship. In this free on-demand webinar, experts in antibiotic prescribing will discuss their current practices for gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, as well as the most effective antibiotic stewardship practices at their institutions.

Markers for COVID-19 disease progression: Comprehensive LC-MS characterization of the metabolome with the Xevo G3 QTof

During this on-demand free webinar, you will learn about the recently launched Xevo G3 QTof system and discover how it is solving problems that matter. Professor Clare Mills discusses the use of an LC/MS metabolomics approach to profile serum from COVID-19 inpatients. She also describes how to identify and characterize prognostic biomarkers to support the development of mass spectrometry rapid clinical screening tools.
