There is an urgent need to better understand the role of innate immunity in relation to the current COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to future pandemics.

We must also ensure that the international scientific community, relevant political and social organizations, as well as the global community, have increased awareness of this burgeoning scientific field. In this symposium, leading health experts from academic research to nonprofits will discuss everything from the basics of innate immunity to what lies ahead in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic beyond the lab.
