September 10 Conversation: The Race for a Vaccine
Since it originated in January, the COVID-19 pandemic has killed more than 700,000 people, sickened more than 18 million, and wiped out trillions of dollars worth of economic growth. To return to normal, the world waits eagerly for a vaccine. But the race to develop one may be one of the most complex endeavors in human history. Medical experts and drug manufacturers have promised a solution could be widely available as early as next year. Delivering on that timetable will be just short of a miracle. The fastest humanity has ever developed a vaccine is four years; most take nearly a decade. And for some deadly viruses, most notably AIDS, decades of research have yet to produce a vaccine at all.
We will share thoughts and answer questions about:
- Why are experts so confident that we will succeed in developing a vaccine so quickly this time?
- What are the breakthrough techniques and technologies that have accelerated development of a vaccine for COVID-19?
- What are most promising approaches to finding a vaccine?
- What are governments and manufacturers doing to make sure the vaccines that do show promise will be safe, effective, and can be distributed at speed and scale.
Join us for an up-to-the minute, invitation only virtual conversation on the multibillion-dollar global race for COVID-19 cure and what it will mean for your business.
