Pandemic-proofing the future
26 Apr 2021
12.30 - 1.30
Old Quad, University of Melbourne
Take a deep dive into Australia’s COVID-19 response with Doherty Institute’s world-leading science, clinical and public health experts.
How could Australia be better prepared to respond to future pandemics?
Australia’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been one of the strongest and most effective in the world. And yet, there are still plenty of lessons to be learned.
The Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity was the first in the world outside of China to grow the COVID-19 virus in a lab, and share it with laboratories in Australia and around the world. In this live panel discussion, the world-leading science, clinical and public health experts from the Doherty Institute will take a deep dive into Australia’s COVID-19 response to pose the big questions: what lessons have we learned? What could we do differently next time? And, how likely are we to face another pandemic in the future?
This is a free event but registration is essential.
This event is part of Melbourne Knowledge Week, 26 April – 2 May 2021, proudly presented by the City of Melbourne.
