COVID-19: Vaccines, Testing, and the Science Behind the Cure
In part two of a two-part series, join an online discussion Wednesday, July 8, at 1 pm EDT with viral immunologist Kizzmekia Corbett, lead scientist on the vaccine development effort at the National Institutes of Health, computational genomicist Pardis Sabeti of Harvard University, and physician Lynne Richardson of Mt. Sinai’s new Institute for Health Equity Research, moderated by science reporter Arielle Duhaime-Ross. Explore the biology of viruses, how diagnostic tests work, and what vaccines are and how they are being developed for COVID-19—all within the social context, including racial inequities in health and healthcare.
Every object we create tells a story. On Thursday, July 9, at 2 pm EDT, meet Museum archaeologists Anna Semon, Thomas Blaber, and Abigail Musch as they talk about their work in the North American Archaeology Laboratory and what artifacts from the collections reveal about the humans who made them.
Take a live, virtual flight across the city’s grid on Friday, July 10, at 1 pm EDT with Museum astrophysicist Jackie Faherty. Learn about the history and astronomy behind this spectacular light display and what makes Manhattanhenge a unique urban phenomenon.
The Museum’s Summer Camps are moving online, with educators leading camps for students in Grades 2–9. Camps feature hands-on investigations, talks by guest scientists, virtual hall and behind-the-scenes tours, off-line projects, and more with focused offerings in Earth and space science, biodiversity, and climate change. Various sessions begin July 27. The number of participants per camp is limited.
With our doors closed, the Museum is operating under unprecedented financial strain—and we urgently need your help as the Museum continues to fulfill its mission of science and education. At this crucial moment, every gift, of any size, matters. We are gratefully accepting donations here.
