Nevan Krogan, PhD
Director, Quantitative Biosciences Institute at University of California, San Francisco
Senior Director, Gladstone Institute
Adjunct faculty, Buck Institute
Recorded: Wednesday, May 6th
Join Nevan Krogan, live Wednesday, May 6th, as he shares his perspective on how to think about, deal with, and potentially treat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nevan is the director of the Quantitative Biosciences Institute at UCSF. He is also a senior director at the Gladstone Institutes, faculty at the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, director at the Thermo Fisher Scientific Proteomics Facility for Disease Target Discovery, and adjunct faculty at the Buck. He received his PhD from the University of Toronto.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in China, the Krogan lab has been singularly focused on understanding how SARS-CoV-2—the virus that causes the disease—hijacks the machinery of human cells to replicate itself. The Krogan lab has identified all the human proteins that interact with SARS-CoV-2. Nevan is now spearheading the QBI Coronavirus Research Group, an international collaboration to test 69 potential drugs against the virus.
“I’ve never seen this many scientists bring their diverse expertise together to work on a single problem.”
