Preventing the Next Wave: Spotting, Tracking, and Responding to Covid Variants

This session was broadcasted LIVE on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm ET across The Rockefeller Foundation’s social media pages (TwitterFacebookLinked In, and YouTube). 

Existing and emerging genomic surveillance techniques are providing the most robust data we’ve seen to date on Covid-19, but science alone cannot protect health and well-being; collaboration across sectors is key. This panel will explore how scientists, public health officials, the private sector and citizens can work together to stop a potential new Covid-19 wave and prevent future pandemics.

Speakers include:

  • Jessica Malaty Rivera, Moderator, Pandemic Tracking Project, USA
  • Professor Satyajit (Jitu) Mayor, Director of the National Centre for Biological Sciences, India
  • Dr. Sam Scarpino, Managing Director, Pathogen Surveillance, Pandemic Prevention Institute, USA
  • Dr. Bertha Hidalgo, Professor, School of Public Health, University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA
