Where Science Meets Humanity
Guiding recovery from COVID-19 for workforce and society in your neighborhood and around the globe.
Rooted in science and humanity, we provide up-to-date information for individuals, family members, friends and coworkers affected by coronavirus. We apply principles of medicine to the new public health reality, striking balance between what’s needed to fight the pandemic and how we may resume daily life, step by step. Through stories of people recovering from the virus and restoring their lives – medically, economically, socially, and emotionally – we guide the conversation to understand what it takes to restore productivity and purpose while maintaining your own health and the health of others.
MARK C. POZNANSKY, MD, PHD, FCRP, FIDSA
Dr. Poznansky is an expert physician scientist and medical innovator who has combined these expertise together to found and direct the Vaccine and Immunotherapy Center (VIC) at Massachusetts General Hospital to foster accelerated bench to bedside research and the development of novel vaccines and immunotherapies for cancer, infectious and immune mediated diseases. His expertise is in immunology and, in particular, immune cell migration. He discovered fugetaxis, the principle of immuno-repulsion or the active movement of immune cells away from an agent source, that forms the basis of his academic research at Harvard Medical School. His laboratory defined the molecular mechanism for this novel immune process and now explores the relevance of this mechanism to new therapeutic approaches to cancer, infectious diseases and type 1 diabetes. Dr. Poznansky is a Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Attending Physician in Infectious Diseases Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital.
