Policy Lates-25 May - Translational Research


The development of COVID-19 vaccines globally represents an unprecedented feat and ongoing challenge for the biosciences, and for cross-sector and international collaboration.

In this event, our panel of speakers will discuss translational research successes and lessons learned in COVID-19 vaccines development. We'll consider the ongoing challenges presented by SARS-CoV-2 variants, drawing-out the consequences for our fight against COVID-19, particularly via translational research on vaccines. To conclude, we'll reflect on what implications these successes, lessons and challenges hold, for the innovation and translational research potential of the biosciences in improving global health more broadly.
