Be aware, not scared (ep.5)

Sylvia Mondinelli

IIT community discussing the impact of COVID-19 emergency on their life and research

The importance of listening to Science. This is how we start off this fifth conversation with our IIT network during COVID-19 times. 

This episode hosts four guest, two IIT Alumni and two IIT collaborators, talking from two distant places, both geographically and in the way they are handling the pandemic.
John Assad, Professor of Neurobiology and Lorella Battelli, Associate Professor of Neurology at the Harvard Medical School tune in from Boston, US.  From the same city, but from a different university, we connect with Giorgio Bonacchini, Postdoc at Tufts University.

Alberto Scaccabarozzi, Postdoc Fellow at KAUST in Jeddah, tells us about the quick and strict measures taken by the Saudi King, aware that Saudi Arabia would usually attract millions of pilgrims every year, being home to Mecca and Medina. 

Marco Monga, IIT HR Director and Sylvia Mondinelli, IIT Alumni Relations Administrator moderate the conversation.
