How Science Matters
A science podcast from Burnet Institute
Helping us to make sense of the many impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic through science. Why is it so hard to crush this pandemic and will we solve this complex problem? Digging through the science of the coronavirus and other infectious diseases, we look at how we got here, and what comes next. In these uncertain times, this 8-part series shares the stories of Australian scientists to help make sense of a mutating virus and to give us hope. This is a science podcast from Burnet Institute, a key adviser to government and the global response during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hear from the nation’s leading scientific thinkers as they forensically uncover what it takes to battle a deadly disease. Hosted by journalist Tracy Parish and Professor Brendan Crabb, a microbiologist, malaria researcher, and one of the best minds in infectious diseases and global health today.
Produced by Written & Recorded.
