SAN FRANCISCO - “Science Week” continues on a new installment “Pac-12 Playlist,” presented by New York Life, tonight at 7 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. MT on Pac-12 Network. The theme of the week highlights scientific professionals from around the league, bringing fans exclusive interviews on the effects of COVID-19 on the universities and our communities. Tonight’s episode features interviews with Arizona’s Dr. Janko Nikolich-Žugich, as well as Oregon State’s Dr. Jeff Bethel and Ben Dalziel.
Dr. Nikolich-Žugich, the department head of immunobiology at the University of Arizona, discusses the work he is doing to provide tests to everyone that measures exposure and immunity to COVID-19 with host Ashley Adamson. Dr. Nikolich-Žugich discusses the importance of slowing the spread of the virus and what is needed for universities to realistically reopen in the fall.
Also tonight, host Mike Yam sits down with Oregon State University associate professors Dr. Jeff Bethel and Ben Dalziel to talk about TRACE, which is a project that gathers timely and lifesaving information to slow the spread and minimize the impact of COVID-19 through door-to-door testing in Corvallis, Ore. Dr. Bethel and Dalziel discuss how they aim to provide more information to public health officials to help them better control the pandemic in the community.
Extended interviews with Dr. Nikolich-Žugich, Dr. Bethel and Professor Dalziel are available now on the “Pac-12 Perspective” podcast, presented by Nike. Tuesday’s installment of the podcast features former Naismith College Player of the Year Dr. Kate Starbird, who talks about the spread of misinformation about COVID-19 on social media, and turns back the clock to share some memories of playing for Stanford women’s basketball head coach Tara VanDerveer. Stanford men’s tennis’ Christian Kontaxis, who has been assisting an epidemiologist to predict the spread of COVID-19 in his own backyard, is Friday’s guest.
