The Challenges in Testing for COVID-19 and How do we Learn for the Next Pandemic
PANEL MODERATOR: Nathan Ledeboer, PhD, Professor and Vice Chair, Pathology and Medical Director, Medical College of Wisconsin

  • Supply shortages, what can labs and the government do to be better prepared in an era of just in time shipping
  • Regulatory changes, what changes are needed to ensure testing is not limited for the next pandemic?
  • Some foundations such as Gates and Rockefeller are considering developing surveillance networks
  • As we increasingly move to FDA cleared products, are we losing the ability to develop our own tests?
  • What is the role of NGS-based assays in mass surveillance
  • How do we solve the extraction challenge?
  • Test performance was a major issue in COVID-19, what can we learn?
