Preview the event with CEO Andy Card

Are we destined for a New Cold War? Watch CEO Andy Card and moderator Dr. Martin J. Murphy explain “Looking Forward: Avoiding a Vaccine Cold War” with three of the top minds grappling with the pandemic and vaccines at the global level: Sir Jeremy Farrar, Director, The Wellcome Trust; Dr. Richard Hatchett, CEO, The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI); and Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Chief Scientist, The World Health Organization.

“Looking Forward” will also feature a conversation focusing on the special role Texas A&M University will play once a vaccine is approved for distribution by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Greg Hartman, Texas A&M’s Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives and Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Texas A&M Health, and Bush School fellow Dr. Glen Laine, the Vice President for Research Emeritus and Director of the Michael E. DeBakey Institute for Comparative Cardiovascular Science and Biomedical Devices at Texas A&M University, will delve into the recently announced contract between the federal government and the Texas A&M University System’s Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing (CIADM) to produce millions of vaccine doses as part of Operation Warp Speed.”
