COVID-19 has transformed the lives of people everywhere — how they live, travel, work and socially interact. On Tuesday, Sept. 15, four highly accomplished scientists, including LANL’s Bette Korber, will initiate a conversation on how COVID-19 could and will transform science and security, and its ethical, legal and social implications for our future.

A combination of talks and discussion, this unclassified webinar, “COVID-19: Harnessing a Transformational Pandemic,” is co-hosted by Los Alamos National Laboratory; the National Laboratory; the Committee on Science, Technology, and Law of the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine; and Texas A&M University.
