How Science Matters Podcast

This will not leave anyone untouched in 20 years’ time. We will all have had some SARS-CoV-2 infection. It might be mild. It might be severe.

That’s the view of a leading vaccine expert who lives the science every day – Professor Heidi Drummer.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic first impacted our lives – making sense of the science has become a daily challenge for us all.

And yet the world is still not COVID-free. But there is hope – science.

Why is it so hard to crush this global pandemic? We look at how we got here, and what comes next.

In these challenging times Burnet Institute has released a special 8-part podcast seriesHow Science Matters – featuring some of Australia’s visionary scientific thinkers. You’ll also find out what keeps them awake at night as they grapple with a pandemic – and how science is playing a leading role in shaping our response.

“Science does matter. It’s why we’re not in the dark ages. It’s why we will deal with COVID.” – co-host, Professor Brendan Crabb AC

Each thematic episode is co-hosted by former ABC Radio journalist Tracy Parish and Burnet Institute’s Professor Brendan Crabb AC, a microbiologist, malaria researcher, and one of the best minds in infectious diseases and global health today.
