Regional Science and Technology Centre would like to invite you to its Hubs on Stage -webinar entitled
Bio-economic response towards pandemic of corona virus
Behind the closed doors of SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic laboratory
Due to the pandemic of new corona virus SARS-CoV-2 everyday life was halted and now we
are facing a diametrically different reality. It is difficult to get used to many new restrictions
that nowadays we must obey. Not just bio economy but the whole global economy has been
already standing on the edge of the crisis. Many enterprises are bankrupting as they are not
able to adjust to rapidly changing environment.
Through our „Hubs on stage” event we would like to share with you our idea of re-imagining the purpose and scope of work that can be done by the RD institution in order to answer the call for action during pandemic.
As you may know in our institution there are laboratories mostly used for bio-banking, new bio-technologies,bioinformatics, medical genetics, biomarkers and auto-immunology. However because of current pandemic our director has decided to switch laboratories’ interests to SARS CoV-2
diagnosis. Since 23rd of March 2020 in cooperation with The Jan Kochanowski University we
have been diagnosing SARS-CoV-2, as the second institution in our voivodeship!
During our event we would like to explain how we have managed the change, how is the cooperation
with the University and how does work in the SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic laboratory look like. The
special guest of our event will be the Head of SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic laboratory Mr. Łukasz
