Conversations Confronting COVID-19 Virtual Event Series: Innovation Pivots

June 24 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

On June 24, join us for the first event in the Conversations Confronting COVID-19 virtual series, where you’ll hear from researchers, students, and alumni, who have pivoted their research to come up with creative solutions to the pandemic.

In this event, you’ll learn about:

  • The Mechanical Ventilator Milano initiative, an international project aimed at developing a low-cost, easy-to-build ventilator to treat COVID-19. The project has gained international media attention, and the Canadian arm of the collaboration is being led by Queen’s Nobel Laureate, Dr. Arthur B. McDonald.
  • The Hand Sanitizer Initiative mobilized by Queen’s researchers and industry partners to support Kingston hospitals.
  • Dunin-Deshpande Queen’s Innovation Centre’s Spread Innovation Challenge that inspired 150 innovators across the globe to tackle pressing challenges caused by COVID-19.

Following the presentation, there will be time for a Q&A with our panelists.
