Podcast Marion Koopmans, Can we stop the coronavirus

March 5, 2020

And what's the best approach? Marion Koopmans talks about it in this podcast. As a virologist at Erasmus MC and advisor to international bodies such as the WHO, she is engaged in the fight against infectious diseases. She sees that solving and preventing global outbreaks is becoming increasingly complex, partly because the worlds of humans and animals are increasingly merging. The Virology department, which Koopmans leads, is involved in solving the secrets behind the coronavrirus (SARS-CoV-2) but also behind all kinds of other viruses, from herpes to Ebola. In this broadcast you also hear who man is behind this inspired virologist. "She can teach you how to do 1,000 things at once."
