Virtual Panel: COVID-19 Vaccine and Treatment R&D in Canada

May 21, 2020

Event Navigation

The outbreak of COVID-19 evolves quickly and protecting the health of Canadians is the priority of Canada’s health research and health innovation communities. While there are no therapies available for either the prevention or treatment of COVID-19, Canadians are extremely fortunate to have some of the best, brightest and dedicated health researchers, including virologists, vaccinologists and infectious disease experts as well as vaccine developers and manufacturers to help expedite the development and availability of medical products such as vaccines, antibodies, and drugs to prevent and treat COVID-19.

In the first of the series of Research Canada’s Virtual Expert Panels, A Race Against the Clock: COVID-19 Vaccine and Treatment R&D in Canada we will feature four of Canada’s top health researchers who are working tirelessly to understand and treat this disease, contributing to the global effort to ultimately defeat COVID-19.
