COVID-19 Infographic Resources

SLAS has created a series of infographics to help explain the technical and often complex terms discussed during the COVID-19 pandemic. These infographics will help illustrate, in very basic terms, the scientific research behind the ongoing work that is being done in labs worldwide to better understand the nature of the virus, diagnose and manage patients, develop vaccines, and discover more effective ways to stop the pandemic and save lives.  

We invite you to share these infographics widely with your networks, family members, friends, and on your social media channels. Check back as we add more to this library.
