Solutions for New COVID-19 Variant and Post-Vaccination Monitoring

With the increasing in the vaccinated population, many countries are undergoing the transitioninig from pandemic to endemic COVID-19. However, the rise of new variants of concern (VOC) has decelerated the transition process. Scientists and researchers are increasing their effort to test and evaluate the effectiveness of vaccines and treatments against new VOC. Neutralizing antibodies (NAbs) are a critical component of the humoral adaptive immune mechanisms against viral infections. Therefore, analyzing NAb responses is crucial to evaluate vaccine-induced immune protection. In this webinar, Dr. Chengxun Su will discuss the following topics:

  • Challenges and research priorities related to the Omicron variant
  • NAb as the biomarker for Correlate of Protection for COVID-19 vaccines
  • NAb kinetics and longevity in infected & vaccinated individuals
  • Detection of NAb against Variant of Concern
  • Solutions for Omicron-related research and development
  • A NAb-guided personalized COVID-19 vaccine booster shot regimen

    Dr. Shuting Xu
  • Speaker: Dr. Chengxun Su, Field Application Scientist, GenScript
  • Date: 10th February 2022
  • Time: 2PM SGT

About the speaker:

Chengxun received her PhD training in Biomedical Engineering, Interdisciplinary Graduate School at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. During her PhD, she focused on developing bio-engineered platforms for disease modeling and drug testing applications, where she applied cutting-edge technologies in cell biology, microfabrication, microfluidics, and molecular biology to develop novel tools to support fundamental and translational research. Using these cutting-edge technologies, Chengxun spearheaded several collaborations with clinicians to investigate immune dysfunction and inflammatory profile in patients who recovered from COVID-19, paving the way for potential intervention strategies.
