Sarah Gilbert on designing a Covid-19 vaccine

Season 3, Ep. 17

Julia is joined by Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert, the co-creator of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, one of the most widely used Covid-19 vaccines in the world. She shares her experience of working around the clock with her team to develop the vaccine at record speed, what it’s been like to see the impact of the vaccine in the UK and beyond, and her frustration at the inequity of vaccine distribution around the world. Sarah also underlines the need for more funding for vaccine development to ensure we can be better prepared for future outbreaks and avoid the devastating consequences of another global pandemic.
