From the frontlines of vaccine development, our alumni speakers will share behind-the-scenes stories and answer your burning questions about the "fastest vaccine ever." What is the real status of the COVID-19 vaccine, when will it be widely available and what will the rollout look like? Who has been receiving it in the trials, and who will get it first and last? How do we know that it will be safe? How has the political and economic climate affected the process? What's it like to be in the middle of the vaccine frenzy? For insights on these questions and more, please join us for a panel discussion with:
