The Antigen Podcast Episode 7: Innovations in the Vaccine Landscape

Innovation can mean different things to different people. When it comes to vaccine innovation, we’re really talking about two things: creating new vaccines that we need or improving something about the ones we currently have. In this episode, we’ll cover a few examples of vaccine innovation, from vaccine design to delivery. Host Yasmeen Agosti speaks to Anna Mouser of Wellcome Trust, Naa Adorkor Yawson of Zipline, Alison Witkoff of the IRC, Prof. David Salisbury of Chatham House , Dr. Peter Palese of Mount Sinai, and Dr. James Gulley of the NIH.
