COVID-19 Vaccinology Videos


Did you watch the IUIS Webinar on COVID-19 Vaccines by Rino Rappouli (Chief Scientist and Head of R&D at GSK). If you missed it, please watch it below.

In addition to videos above, please listen to interview by other researchers on COVID-19 vaccines.

Prof. Gary Kobinger (Laval University, Canada) conducted an Audio Interview on “SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Development: Where Are We Now ?”. During his interview he discussed different vaccines that are currently in development as well as the processes involved in fast-tracking vaccine development in times of an epidemic.

If you conduct any vaccinology research, particularly vaccine development then you should know Prof. Stanley Plotkin! . Listen to his short audio interview: SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Development. During his talk he highlighted the importance of Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations. He also gave a brief history on the vaccine development of different coronaviruses, including initial development of the SARS-CoV (2002/3 epidemic) which was stopped once the epidemic was halted.

Ever wondered how scientist choose vaccine antigens ? Prof. Plotkin and Dr Adolfo Garcia-Sastre (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, USA) both discussed this decision process in their interviews. Dr Garcia-Sastre interview: SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine: Current Biological Targets and Considerations.
