Part 1: The Science of Vaccines

Early vaccines relied on exposing the immune system to weakened versions of a pathogen to elicit an immune response. Modern vaccinologists, however, make use of different strategies to stimulate immunity. Part 1 of Vaccines in the Time of COVID-19 discussed the tools that immunologists make use of and which approaches are most promising to combat COVID-19.

Speaker: Barney Graham, Deputy Director of the Vaccine Research Center, and Chief of the Viral Pathogenesis Laboratory and Translational Science Core at NIAID/NIH
