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.

  • Jessica Malaty Rivera, Moderator, Pandemic Tracking Project, USA

  • Dr. Sam Scarpino, Managing Director, Pathogen Surveillance, Pandemic Prevention Institute, USA
