RI Innovator Series: COVID-19 Vaccine Update

Share on Social Media

A year ago the idea of having several vaccines ready to distribute within a year seemed insurmountable. But science prevailed and the development of the SARS-CoV2 vaccine was the fastest in history. Join us to learn how it has opened a new innovation window that we can learn from for the future – and possibly prevent the next epidemic from becoming a pandemic. Our panel of industry, scientific and frontline experts will explore recent achievements and challenges with all aspects of the vaccine, as well as the future of healthcare innovation. HOSTS
