Medical Scientist, Dr Gagandeep Kang talks to host Pavan Srinath about the development of vaccines, ongoing efforts on COVID-19, and the challenges of developing immunity / resistance against the virus.

Dr. Kang unpacks this unprecedented effort at vaccine development and discusses the limits of our existing scientific knowledge about COVID-19.
