Scientists tackling global challenges: a collaborative journey in vaccine development
Everyone is invited to join us online for this special event for International Women’s Day and our Athena Swan Lecture for 2022.
We are delighted that Professor Teresa Lambe OBE will be in conversation with Professor Simonetta Manfredi, Associate Dean Research and Knowledge Exchange in the Oxford Brookes Business School.
A scientist working at Oxford University's Jenner Institute, Teresa is one of the co-developers of the Oxford–AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine against the new coronavirus causing COVID-19. In 2021, she was appointed Honorary Officer of the Order of the British Empire for services to Science and Public Health. Along with researchers from the Oxford team, Teresa was recently recognised with a Global Impact and Innovation Award and Honorary Lifetime Membership of the British Society for Immunology.
In discussion with Professor Manfredi, Teresa will share insights from the inside story of the vaccine development journey in the context of her wider work, through a reflective lens on how gender and diversity influence and impact her experience.
