There will also be the chance for the audience to ask panelists questions themselves at the end if they hold on to their questions.
How does your field relate to vaccine development?
When trying to make a vaccine, where does a researcher begin? What are some of the main questions researchers ask?
Research is a very trial and error field. If the first trials do not turn out as expected, how do researchers build upon what they learned in order to continue their research?
Research is a team effort sport. What are some of the ways you collaborate with other labs when trying to develop a potential vaccine?
Recently, we have heard a lot about accelerated vaccine trials using combined phases. Should all vaccines in the future undergo combined phases, or do you think this hinders vaccine quality?On top of that, due to a rushed timeline, many pharmaceutical companies skipped preclinical animal testing. Why is preclinical animal testing so important and do you think it is an important step for clinical trials?
What are some legal concerns normally regarding vaccine delivery?
Can you talk a little bit about “immunity passports’? If this were to be enacted, what are the implications and potential challenges?
There are some concerns regarding the anti vax community and how they may respond to the release of the COVID-19 vaccine, how do you think that will affect the fight against COVID-19? (in terms of herd immunity, immunocompromised people, etc.)
How can someone with lower health literacy avoid misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine, whether it’s from a scientific article or general social and news media? (in regard to political and scientific distrust)
Pfizer and Moderna both announced vaccines that were developed using mRNA technology. Can you tell us a little bit about how this new type of vaccine works and what its benefits are as compared to conventional vaccines, in terms of efficacy, administration, and distribution?
If you have any questions you would like to ask, please raise your virtual hand and we will call on your or please send Danya your questions in the chat
