The University of Oxford’s Pandemic Sciences Institute (PSI) will formally launch this week.
It will draw together academics and experts from across the University to build a multi-disciplinary institute focused on reducing the risk from infectious threats through science, innovation and building global preparedness.
The PSI’s underlying mission will be to create collaborative solutions to infectious disease threats, bringing together fundamental and translational research to improve global health and enhance real-world capabilities to respond to future outbreaks.
Journalists came to this briefing to put their questions to some of the key scientists.
Speakers will include:
Prof Sir Peter Horby, Moh Family Foundation Professor of Emerging Infections and Director of the Pandemic Sciences Institute
Prof Dame Sarah Gilbert, Saïd Professor of Vaccinology at the University of Oxford
