Last week, after months of clinical trials, the first handful of people became the first in the world to receive a COVID vaccine, marking the beginning of the end of the coronavirus pandemic. In this week's episode, we highlight the extraordinary achievement that this represents - and explore the value and importance of collaboration across borders and across disciplines. We've discussed vaccines before in Episode 16 - and we're now returning to the topic with Professor Martina Micheletti, Professor of Bioprocess Fluid Dynamics in the UCL Department of Biochemical Engineering, and co-director of the future vaccine manufacturing hub Vax Hub, which works to secure the supply of essential vaccines.
