The unprecedented spread of SARS-CoV-2 has created a global emphasis on the immune system and its role in COVID-19 disease risk, outcomes and therapeutics. But we also understand that immunological alterations and perturbations have ripple effects far beyond infectious diseases. In particular, research highlights the overlap between mental health and immunological activation.
– How does COVID-19 provide a lens through which to better understand depression and immune-based therapeutics?
– What might the non-infectious effects of the virus represent as it relates to our mental health?
– How could lifestyle changes help to offset this risk?
In this talk, we’ll explore the history of the immune-mood interface, the relevance of COVID-19 in this discussion, and potential next steps to integrate this information into therapeutic strategies.
