Tuesday, June 9 at 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM PDT

The long-term solution to the pandemic is the availability of vaccines. Yet the development of a vaccine is complex, especially during a global pandemic of an unknown pathogen. Even so, many vaccine developers moved swiftly, using platform technologies to go from genetic sequence data to vaccine candidates in a few weeks. This three-part plenary session facilitated by Phyllis Arthur, Vice President, Infectious Diseases and Diagnostics Policy, BIO,  will focus on the novel science of vaccines in development as well as the challenges of clinical trials, manufacturing scale-up and global implementation.
