About the Maxim Group and M-Vest COVID-19 Virtual Conference Series
The unmet need in infectious diseases cannot be overstated and COVID-19 continues to be a stark reminder of how unprepared the world is to deal with a pandemic. SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, while sadly is still inducing tremendous loss of life, has brought out the very best in the biotechnology community from a drug, vaccine and testing perspective. In this iteration of our ongoing M-Vest Infectious Disease Virtual Conference Series, we focus in on two key areas related to the ongoing pandemic; cell based therapies and testing. Please join us as we break it down with two panels of companies leading efforts in cell therapies and testing for COVID-19.
