Ri.MED Symposium 2021 “COVID-19: mechanistic dissection, drug development and clinical evaluation”

This Ri.MED Symposium will bring together a panel of scientists for a two-day virtual meeting and it will cover various complementary approaches focused on COVID-19.
The first day will focused on drug discovery, from advanced data analysis to structural biology approaches, while the second one will be clinical focused, including clinical research programs and trials, along with a case-history of IRCCS ISMETT during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in Sicily.
