Evolution of the Laboratory in Response to COVID-19 and Priorities for the Future

December 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm UTC+0

Effective national and local responses to the COVID-19 pandemic have been closely tied to having a functional laboratory system that can provide data for decision-making in real time but can also adapt quickly using new technologies. Sustainable training and development programs are needed to ensure a laboratory workforce that is prepared for emerging infectious disease threats. As part of the GHSA Lessons Observed Webinar (GLOW) series, panelists from the GHSA Laboratory Systems Action Package will explore the importance of developing sustainable laboratory systems for surveillance and emergency response, provide tangible examples of where and how this has been accomplished, and discuss priorities for future action.
