The Influenzer Initiative’s video series highlights critical insights from conversations with leading infectious disease researchers, funders, and policymakers, who examine how recent vaccine breakthroughs could be applied to thwart another—potentially worse—pandemic threat: influenza.
Episode 8: Reshaping Vaccine R&D for Pandemic Prevention
Another—maybe worse—pandemic awaits us if we lapse into complacency once COVID-19 abates. Averting future crises requires sustained funding and a globally coordinated “peacetime” effort to thwart emerging infectious diseases and the ever-present threat of influenza. Learn how the COVID-19 experience has inspired scientists, economists, pharmaceutical manufacturers, health policy analysts and decision-makers to re-imagine the global vaccine R&D ecosystem for pandemic prevention.
In episode eight, find insights from:
Swati Gupta, Gagandeep Kang, Gerald Keusch, Andrew Lo, John Nkengasong, Kanta Subbarao and Patrick Tippoo.
Scientific leaders discuss the future of pandemic vaccine R&D in light of the COVID-19 response.
