Talk Title: Emergence of Biotechnology Platforms During COVID-19: A Lesson in Modern Biology
Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the development and manufacturing of vaccines at an unprecedented rate. This has been enabled by the emergence of biotechnology platforms such as mRNA and Viral Vectors. In this seminar, I will outline the engineering aspects of such platforms and the modern biology behind their evolution.
