A special event streaming live from the USask Calgary Hub: As the leader of VIDO at USask, Dr. Volker Gerdts and his team were the first in the country to isolate the COVID-19 virus and to have a vaccine candidate in pre-testing. Now, they are focused on predicting future pandemics and addressing them by combatting emerging diseases before they have a chance to evolve into a substantial threat.
