Radio Corona, Apr 23: would you get volunteer to get the coronavirus?

In this episode of Radio Corona, Gideon Lichfield, editor in chief of MIT Technology Review, will discuss volunteer initiatives that might accelerate the development of a coronavirus vaccine.

 Josh Morrison is the Executive Director at Waitlist Zero and part of the team at 1 Day Sooner. Both organizations recruit volunteers to take part of the covid-19 vaccine trials. Ian Haydon is one such volunteer, currently taking part in Moderna’s vaccine trial. He explained his decision for us a couple of weeks ago. Arthur Caplan, a Professor of Bioethics at New York University Langone Medical Center and the founding director of the Division of Medical Ethics, will also be talking to us about the ethical questions surrounding the trials.

The conversation will take place here at 4pm ET on April 23. Please submit your questions for them via this Google form and we will pose them to our guests during the show. We will also broadcast the episode on our Facebook and YouTube page.
