The Precision Diagnostics Center will be hosting a virtual conference highlighting the efforts of universities over the past year to implement Covid-19 surveillance and testing programs. Starting early March of 2020, many campuses made critical decisions to shut down and start remote teaching to ensure the safety of staff, faculty, and students. Regular testing of campus populations was a key part of making the return to residential teaching. This conference will include detailed talks from several universities that built their own testing programs. Other topics include quarantine, isolation and contact tracing efforts, challenges returning to laboratory research science, and deep sequencing efforts to determine the presence and emergence of SARS-CoV-2 variants on campus. The conference will also host several topical discussion rooms in the virtual “lobby,” where attendees can stop in to network with each other and speakers during the daylong program.
