Is D614G more virulent? Nope, and no one (credible) is saying that. Stop fear-mongering. @ivancouronne https://t.co/4gIsxGzJm5

Limited influence of the microbiome on the transcriptional profile of female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes https://t.co/c1A2pMBU67 Our paper is finally out. Take home message the transcriptional response to microbiota is more akin to transient inf. than large physiological changes.

Our study on Excess Deaths in the United States for March-May now out in @JAMAInternalMed https://t.co/N8GEjnYgn7

Important new research on the hidden deaths from SARS-2 by @WeinbergerDan and others. Great work. https://t.co/6KzpRaNeIh

I grew up in one of England’s most #economicallydisadvantaged seaside areas (#lovethanet, #loveramsgate, #lovemargate). My mum works with #COVID patients everyday there. Please keep local communities and my mum safe. Don’t flock to beaches! #SocialDistancinguk #ProtectTheNHS

This Thursday, 7pm ET, log on to the @CienciaPR or @CosacoPr FB for a live conversation w @Yale's @awyllie13 who will speak about saliva as a cost-effective and scalable #COVID19 PCR testing strategy. (Paper here 👉🏾 https://t.co/25K1LDLtjw) https://t.co/whTgPXvH7x https://t.co/47VUZMGLCo

It was my absolute pleasure to speak with @CienciaPR & @CosacoPr this evening. I continue to be inspired by everyone coming together in this fight against #COVID19. We urgently need affordable, mass testing. Saliva offers a way but restrictions on labs continue to hold this back. https://t.co/EGAW9wz1Lt

The Sokoloski lab is looking to hire a new postdoc for several exciting novel areas of RNA virus research. If you know of any highly motivated individuals that are looking for opportunities please point then my way- I'd love to talk with them.

Exactly 2 years after leaving home 🇳🇱, I'm happy to share the latest publication of the ongoing collaboration with my amazing colleagues @OneHealthEnto @WUR. We show that local Culex pipiens 🦟are very inefficient vectors for #Zika. https://t.co/7d8CPEb13V

Looking for a postdoc position? We are hiring a postdoctoral researcher to work on host-microbe interactions and stem cell biology in the mosquito midgut (Aedes aegypti). More information here: https://t.co/0XHLEbim3L Please share this opportunity with others!

Thrilled to reveal our pre-print “Genome-wide CRISPR screen reveals host genes that regulate SARS-CoV-2 infection” Massive effort by @WilenLab, @johndoench, and generous collaborators. What did we find? #covid19 #CRISPR (1/n) https://t.co/P0LGr4w4Zd https://t.co/xWJFsCrLC2

To safely reopen, we must improve our ability to efficiently #TestTraceIsolate for #COVID19. As the on-going pandemic reaches resource-limited settings, inexpensive, simple, scalable testing is needed. This is possible with #SalivaDirect, our new method. https://t.co/EQf1xKLP5Q

The next protocol, led by @VogelsChantal + @DougBrackney + @awyllie13, is SalivaDirect, an extraction-free saliva RT-qPCR test for SARS-CoV-2. Works fairly well so far; still working on validating other reagents, determining LOD, + optimizing conditions. https://t.co/O8Rjau8vkS

I'm excited to release our first foray into MicroCT analysis! If you would like a quick overview check out the video https://t.co/uW1A8o5ilm. https://t.co/hbTV6GC51t

This is some pretty cool work by @AttardoGeoff on the 3D visualization of the Tsetse fly reproductive tract. https://t.co/9QeE3tXIC8

Yes, public health experts ARE being ideological in supporting the #BlackLivesMatter protests. Our ideology: health is determined not only by physiology, but also by social forces—like systemic racism. My latest with @gregggonsalves in @TheAtlantic. https://t.co/J5WIZ7IoOt

This a great article. "Americans are trying to take care of one another in extraordinary ways—by socially distancing to prevent coronavirus transmission and by protesting the deadly legacy of white supremacy," @JuliaLMarcus and @gregggonsalves write: https://t.co/ZDCqInEvwo

Men are at higher risk of developing severe #COVID19 disease. We investigated whether this difference might be due to the immune response. Fantastic team work by @taka_takehiro et al found that women develop more robust T cell response than men. (1/n) https://t.co/agg7EyVGTD

This is a short paper describing early results from our surveillance of workers in 5 skilled nursing facilities. Very lucky to work with @Nicehrhart, and proud of everyone involved. This was hard and will get harder I'm sure. Hope the data is helpful. https://t.co/7SCjmOhsyg

Great new study examining the asymptomatic transmission of SARS CoV2 in nursing facilities. Foot. Mouth. WHO. https://t.co/Ku6X98sqfE

Breonna Taylor’s 27th birthday would have been June 5. She was shot 8 times by three police officers, who still have not been charged with her murder. #SayHerName

I am recruiting a Ph.D. student from one of the countries with active USAID presence. Our active partners are in Ghana, Ethiopia, Uzbekistan, and South Africa. Please RT and if you know someone please ask them to contact directly by DM or email to me. Thanks!

Interesting article on the whole hydroxychloroquine mess/scandal.. 🤦🏻‍♂️ https://t.co/n7MjRuEmcm
