As you well know, the COVID-19 pandemic has completely upended the international community. What isn’t well known is the critical role the US/UK scientific and research community played in the early days of the pandemic that led to the extraordinary discoveries of new life-saving diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines. Yet, despite this progress, there is still uncertainty for what lies ahead both in this pandemic and what may come next.

By joining us for this special event, you will hear from world leading influencers in government, science, and business. These VIP speakers will discuss the critical role of US/UK research in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and describe ongoing efforts to distribute vaccines globally. Further, experts will share their perspectives on how the UK/US Joint Statement on Pandemic Preparedness and G7 commitment to future pandemic preparedness might be achieved through the 100 Days Mission.
