TWINCORE Symposium 2020

SARS-CoV-2: News from Lower Saxony

The corona pandemic has a stranglehold on the entire world! It poses threat not only to many health care systems but also to the entire world economy. We are grateful to MWK and BMBF who provided funding that allowed swift entry into corona research. The sheer number and the quality of corona research projects in Lower Saxony is impressive and first new knowledge was already retrieved! We are looking forward discussing with other experts and further enhancing collaboration! We are particularly happy that the Minister for Science and Culture from Lower Saxony, Mr. Thümler, will give the introductory speech!
