Tackling COVID-19 together: Building a multi-disciplinary approach to help vaccinate the world
Wednesday 8 September @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The COVID-19 pandemic has generated an intense research effort, which by one estimate has generated more than half a million research publications to date. Much of the COVID-19 research undertaken has been within traditional academic disciplines, but tackling COVID-19 effectively, and dealing with its long-term health and economic impacts, will require a multi-disciplinary research effort.
The purpose of this symposium is to provide a multi-disciplinary forum focusing on effective ways to promote vaccine uptake and to ensure public support for the effort and resources required to vaccinate the world. The symposium will bring together perspectives of immunologists, epidemiologists, psychologists, economists and political scientists on these questions. They will present the latest evidence and discuss the challenges and opportunities ahead.
