RI INNOVATOR SERIES: COVID-19 Vaccine Update

Exploring recent achievements and challenges in the development, approval, allocation and distribution of the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine.

About this Event

A year ago the idea of having several vaccines ready to distribute within a year seemed insurmountable. But science prevailed and the recent development of the SARS-CoV2 vaccine was the fastest in history. Join us to learn how the vaccine’s development has opened a new innovation window that we can learn from for the future – and possibly prevent the next epidemic from becoming a pandemic.
