Webinar on Gender Differences in COVID-19 Pandemic around the world, 06 May 2021

The Italian Gender Medicine Network is organiSing a webinar on 06 May 2021, under the auspices of the International Gender Medicine Society, to tackle the Gender Differences in COVID-19 Pandemic around the world.

COVID-19 led to about 116 million confirmed cases causing almost 2.5 million related deaths worldwide. In the last months, research studies gained several novel insights as concerns SARS Cov-2 mechanisms of infection and spreading paralleled by studies on vaccines and specific drugs. However, a surprising scenario is now emerging from these studies: a significant difference between women and men in the lethality of this infection, higher in men, and in the post-COVID syndrome, likely higher infertile of women. A series of lectures, specifically devoted to the dissection of this matter, will offer a deeper analysis of features and mechanisms underlying the observed sex/gender disparity in order to pull on board different scientific skills and viewpoints.

Participation in the webinar is free of charge, but it is mandatory to register until 30 April 2021.
