Dornsife Dialogues: The History and Science of Vaccines and How to Evaluate Ones for COVID-19

Wednesday, December 2 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Virtual Event

More than 60 vaccines to prevent COVID-19 are in various stages of development, including 11 that are in the final stage of testing in humans. While not all of them will necessarily succeed, we may well face a time in the not-too-distant future when we will have not one but several to choose from.

Please join a multidisciplinary panel of USC experts who will help you navigate your way through not only COVID-19 vaccines but vaccines in general, including their long and often misunderstood history. Moderator Susan L. Forsburg, distinguished professor of biological sciences, will be joined by history professor Aro Velmet; biology and chemistry professor Myron Goodman; Alison Dundes Renteln, professor of political science, anthropology, public policy and law (all from USC Dornsife); and microbiologist and immunologist Paula Cannon from the Keck School of Medicine of USC.
