The Pandemic: One Year On

This roundtable, recorded on March 26, 2021, features an international panel of leading experts discussing COVID-19: how it began, where we are now, and their predictions for the future. They ask – did we make the right calls early on? Are we making the right calls now? Is our testing adequate? How are our vaccines performing? They emphasize the hard work of all involved in diagnostics, treatment, and vaccine development; laud the speed of science and medicine that has led to rapid advances; and discuss the future of COVID-19, including new variants, new approaches to disease control, and the wider impact of the pandemic.

The discussion was sponsored by Asuragen and SpeeDx.

About the Author

Michael Schubert

While obtaining degrees in biology from the University of Alberta and biochemistry from Penn State College of Medicine, I worked as a freelance science and medical writer. I was able to hone my skills in research, presentation and scientific writing by assembling grants and journal articles, speaking at international conferences, and consulting on topics ranging from medical education to comic book science. As much as I’ve enjoyed designing new bacteria and plausible superheroes, though, I’m more pleased than ever to be at Texere, using my writing and editing skills to create great content for a professional audience.
