World Changing Glasgow Conversations | The Extraordinary Journey: Vaccines and COVID-19

0 Просмотры
The first COVID-19 vaccinations in December 2020 were a powerful representation of an exceptional and historic endeavour: the development, authorisation, production and delivery of novel vaccines in record time.

With positive findings from additional vaccine clinical trials announced on the same day, for what seemed like the first time in 2020, headlines were optimistic and global stocks surged.

The University of Glasgow is proud to have played a part in bringing the new vaccines into being.

In the latest in our series of World Changing Glasgow Conversations, we bring together an expert panel to share how these vaccines have made this extraordinary journey and discuss what needs to happen next to ensure they can help bring the pandemic under control around the world.

Alumni Rod MacKenzie, PhD (Chief Development Officer and Executive Vice President) and John Young (Group President and Chief Business Officer) of Pfizer will be joined by Professor Iain McInnes leading Immunologist and the University’s Head of College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences, and Professor Emma Thomson, Professor in Infectious Diseases in the University’s Centre for Virus Research.

The event will be chaired by Rachel Sandison, Vice-Principal of External Relations at the University.


From Joseph Lister, James Watt and Adam Smith to the detection of Gravitational Waves and the search for a COVID-19 vaccine, for over five centuries, the University of Glasgow has been the home of knowledge, discovery and ideas that change the world.

In this new series of online events, we're connecting leaders in our community of researchers, partners, and alumni to drive change and deliver impact through meaningful debate.

The University of Glasgow, changing the world since 1451.
