Tuesday 8 December 202018.00 to 19.00
1DaySooner and the UCL Bioethics and Medical Law Society present an exclusive debate on the ethics of Covid-19 vaccine development:
“Should we allow healthy volunteers to be infected with SARS-CoV-2 in challenge studies to develop a vaccine?”
Human challenge trials expose healthy volunteers to a pathogen to quickly test vaccines and to learn more about the disease the pathogen causes. Human challenge trials with Covid-19 hold great potential to accelerate the vaccine development process, and the UK is planning to begin these soon, but do the benefits of challenge trials outweigh the risks?
Join us to hear about the arguments for and against human challenge trials from leading figures of the field, and for the opportunity to ask questions and discuss this issue of great current relevance.
