Translating Discoveries Faster: Lessons Learned from COVID-19

Join us for a special COVID-19 webinar series hosted by the Geisel School of Medicine and co-sponsored by Dartmouth Alumni Relations and Dartmouth's graduate schools.

COVID-19 vaccines have been developed, tested, manufactured, and approved in record time – but delivering them to people who need them has proved challenging in the United States. How did we get these vaccines so quickly? What is behind the slow pace of the rollout? What has been learned from these experiences? Panelists will dig into these questions and more, with an eye on the future.
