Annual Lecture with Person of the Year: Prof Sarah Gilbert, Oxford Project Leader COVID-19 Vaccine

Hosted by The Longevity Forum
Virtual: 18:00- 19:00

Our flagship event will be the First Annual Lecture of the Longevity Forum to be delivered by Professor Sarah Gilbert, our Person of the Year 2020 for her leadership of the research into a Covid-19 vaccine and her career-long dedication to combating deadly pathogens with pandemic potential. Professor Gilbert is the Oxford Project Leader for ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, a promising vaccine against the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.

Speakers

Prof Sarah Gilbert

Dr. Gilbert completed her undergraduate studies at the University of East Anglia and her doctoral degree at the University of Hull. Following four years as a research scientist at the biopharmaceutical company Delta Biotechnology she joined the Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM) at Oxford University in 1994 and became part of the Jenner Institute (within NDM) when it was founded in 2005. Her chief research interest is the development of viral-vectored vaccines that work by inducing strong and protective T and B cell responses. She leads the Jenner Institute programme in influenza vaccine development and also works on vaccines for many different emerging pathogens, including Nipah, MERS, Lassa, Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever, and SARS-CoV-2. Working with colleagues in the Jenner Institute research labs, the Clinical Biomanufacturing Facility and Centre for Clinical Vaccinology and Tropical Medicine, all situated on the Old Road Campus in Oxford, she is able to take novel vaccines from design to clinical development, with a particular interest in the rapid transfer of vaccines into manufacturing and first in human trials. She is the Oxford Project Leader for ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, a promising vaccine against the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.
