For our final episode of TGen Talks in 2021, we are back at TGen North in Flagstaff, Arizona, home to TGen’s Pathogen and Microbiome Division and the hub for research into all things COVID. Our host, Karie Dozer, sat down with TGen North Director, Dr. David Engelthaler, who has led TGen’s response to COVID since day one. We began the year with Dr. Engelthaler discussing COVID vaccines and the vaccine rollout, and with the Omicron variant forcing its way into headlines globally, we chose to close out the year by having Dr. Engelthaler share his thoughts on Omicron … what we know, what’s left to learn and why it’s spreading so fast. All this and more in just eighteen minutes on TGen Talks.
