A new era for vaccines? A Petri Dish conversation

Aaron Engelhart will participate in the Petri Dish event panel.


Wed, February 17, 2021

4:00 PM – 5:30 PM CST

Join for a lively conversation about new approaches to fighting disease.

It seems like the pandemic made everyone a medical expert as we latched onto any and every potential medical development that might end this disaster. But how now that vaccines are being developed from new processes, how do we really go from building basic knowledge to applications like vaccines and where did the technology used in the current COVID vaccine development really emerge from?

Join us as we explore how seemingly esoteric research that can appear to focus on minutiae from the outside is really the type of work that leads to breakthroughs in science.
