The American Academy’s Philadelphia Program Committee invites you to a conversation with Katalin Karikó and Drew Weissman, the pioneering scientists whose pursuit of mRNA technology led to life-saving vaccines for COVID-19. Join us to learn about their discoveries and challenges, how their partnership made Philadelphia a birthplace for mRNA vaccines, and the future applications they envision.

This virtual event is the first of a new series, in which local Academy communities host programs that spotlight the recent accomplishments of members in their cities and on their campuses—introducing their colleagues to the wider Academy network.
