Royal Society, London

Professor Catherine Green (U93) speaks about the race – not against other vaccines or other scientists, but against a deadly and devastating virus.

Professor Green, along with Professor Sarah Gilbert have written a Bestselling book Vaxxers which reveals the inside story of making the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine and the cutting-edge science and sheer hard work behind it.

It is a story of fighting a pandemic as ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. Sarah and Cath share the heart-stopping moments in the eye of the storm; they separate fact from fiction; they explain how they made a highly effective vaccine in record time with the eyes of the world watching; and they give us hope for the future.
