Hello, all, and welcome to the COVID Research and Resources Group (CRRG) on APS Engage.
Our next webinar, "Physics of respiratory infections: do we understand it?", will be presented by Lidia Morawska, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia, and moderated by Mark Jermy, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand, on Wednesday, 27 January, at noon, US East Coast time (17:00 UTC). More information…
CRRG is here to provide resources to help our members, and the broader community, gain an understanding of of Covid-19 with an eye to how the physics community can engage with open research questions. To help in that we organize a series of online webinars, provide a discussion forum, and have a library in which members can post resources (and/or links to resources).
APS members will have received the most recent issue of the APS News, which included a short article about CRRG. Others may find the article of interest in introducing CRRG.
“COVID [has] brought together people that didn’t interact before. What we hope is that there will be a long-lasting impact with new collaborations and new partnerships that will go far beyond COVID.” says [CRRG organizing committee chair Robert] Jeraj. “The community will continue [to focus] on medical and society related problems. By building this collaboration, we hope and anticipate that this will have reach well beyond the COVID-specific challenge.”
In addition, the APS CRRG group has a youtube channel where videos of previous talks are available for viewing (typically, one week or so after the presentation).
We invite you to participate and join our community.
