Lecture of Dr. Nina Gnädig-Schoenfeld on COVID-19 and vaccines

On the occasion of Italian Research Day in the World, the Embassy of Italy in Canada, in collaboration with AIRIcerca, the Consulate General of Italy in Toronto, the Italian Trade Agency, the Italian Culture Institute and the Italian Government Travel Office, presents a series of lectures organized by the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario (ICCO).

As science makes steps to help us get back to our daily life, we are delighted to collaborate with the Sistema Italia in promoting this series of lectures designed to educate and understand the explanatory and predictive power of scientific knowledge, as well as contributions of science to society.

Now more than ever, we realize that health and safety will always be a primary focus. Starting with COVID-19 and vaccines, this series will bring experts’ comments and knowledge through online discussions on a huge range of science-related topics.

During the first lecture, Dr. Nina Gnädig-Schoenfeld, PhD, Lecturer in Discipline in the Department of Biological Sciences at Columbia University, will focus on how vaccines prime our immune system, giving us examples of currently licensed vaccines and their impact on public health with comments on efficacy and safety.

The first lecture will be on Thursday March 25th, at 6 pm.
