Dan Notterman is Professor of the Practice in Molecular Biology and Senior Advisor to the Provost for Biomedical Affairs. A physician-scientist, his laboratory studies genetic and epigenetic correlates of child development and health using both longitudinal studies with children (the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study) and model organisms.
When the COVID pandemic began he helped design and open Princeton’s first certified clinical laboratory, which is now testing approximately 15,000 Sars-Cov2 samples per week. Notterman will review the basic biology of the Coronavirus, discuss clinical features of COVID, and take the audience on a virtual tour of the COVID testing laboratory.
