Messenger RNA was the technique that nobody wanted to fund, and yet a few intrepid researchers refused to give up on the technology that has broken all records for how fast a vaccine could be developed. Moderna had trouble raising enough money to continue to function, and Merck refused to get involved in Moderna's vaccine development. The Pfizer vaccine was developed by a German oncology company that had no experience in vaccines. Messenger RNA will be used for a lot more than just Covid-19 vaccines, and Dr. Kent Bottles will discuss future applications. Lunch is included.
