Prof Luke O’Neill chairs a panel on Making Vaccines in a Global Pandemic

The year of 2020 has indeed been the year of science and scientists. The coronavirus pandemic has shaped the year in research. The speed of the coronavirus’s spread has been matched only by the pace of scientific insights. Almost as soon as SARS-CoV-2 was discovered, research groups worldwide started probing its biology, while others developed diagnostic tests or investigated publichealth measures to control it. Scientists raced to find treatments and create vaccines that could bring the pandemic under control. This panel discussion will take us through the year, and offer insights into the future and life post-covid.
