The Pandemic Sciences Institute launched earlier this year as a multi-disciplinary, University-wide initiative to build upon the model of innovation, collaboration and agility that yielded these successes. In this talk Dr Sean Elias will discuss how this approach will help us prepare for the next global pandemic.
