Antiviral medicines and vaccines are both critical tools in our therapeutic arsenal for combating viral outbreaks. Vaccines can provide broad protection for a population, while antiviral drugs treat patients and can be rapidly and cheaply distributed.

In this session, Andrew Ward will share how understanding the precise structure of the coronavirus contributed to a stabilizing innovation used in the two approved SARS-CoV-2 vaccines (from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech).

Case McNamara will share updates on efforts to identify effective antiviral drugs against SARS-CoV-2. Both will discuss learnings and technological developments that can be used to combat future pandemics.
