The fight against the novel coronavirus has been the monumental medical challenge of a lifetime, and few know that fight better than one of our neighbors.

Mill Valley resident Dr. Melanie Ott, M.D., Ph.D., is the Director of the Gladstone Institute of Virology and a professor of medicine at UC San Francisco. She was recently recognized by the San Francisco Chronicle as one of ten top Bay Area scientists collaborating in the race to stop the novel coronavirus.

On Thursday, Feb. 11 at 1pm via Zoom, Dr. Ott will speak virtually to the Outdoor Art Club and the public to discuss the work she and her colleagues are doing to develop one drug to treat multiple viruses, including new and emerging viruses. This event will be held on Zoom.
