Join a panel of cutting-edge researchers to unpack the biology of viruses, learn how diagnostic tests work, and delve into what vaccines are and how they are being developed. The conversation will reveal how the science and social context, including racial inequities in health and healthcare, are inextricably linked as we work to stop the spread of COVID-19. The program features Dr. Pardis Sabeti, a computational genomicist creating diagnostic tests for COVID-19, Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, a viral immunologist and lead scientist on the vaccine development effort at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Vaccine Research Center, and Dr. Lynne Richardson, a physician and co-director of Mt. Sinai’s new Institute for Health Equity Research. The panel will be moderated by science reporter and host of the Reset podcast Arielle Duhaime-Ross.
