    Computational biologist Dr. Christin Glorioso models the pandemic

    Christin Glorioso, MD PhD (@DrGlorioso) is a computational biologist competing in the X-Prize to predict the course of the Covid19 pandemic.

    Maybe we'll get back to movie theaters & comic book conventions sooner than we thought?
