MVEC podcasts cover a range of topics with world-leading vaccine experts.
In the latest episode of our COVID-19 Road to a vaccine series, we speak to Professor Paul Offit from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia about the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on health care workers and children. Next week, we will be speaking to Professor Norman Baylor. Professor Baylor is the former Director of the Office of Vaccines Research and Review at the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). He and Nigel will discuss the important role of regulatory bodies in the development and release of new vaccines.
The year 2020 has seen the emergence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID19), a unique and potentially devastating virus, with no known prevention or treatment. This new SARS-CoV-2 virus has shown to not only have significant international health implications, but also immense psychological and economic impacts. In this series we will delve into the global pursuit of a safe and effective vaccine to prevent COVID19. This is all occurring at ‘pandemic speed’ and MVEC’s new podcast will explore this complicated and multi-faceted process through interviews with a variety of national and international vaccine experts.
