A Paradigm Shift in Infectious Diseases: Lessons from a Pandemic

This 2-day virtual event organized across the Asia Pacific region aims to serve as a platform to share scientific knowledge and provide a discourse on the topic of infectious disease and immunity. Throughout the event, we will be focusing on the following themes:

  • Science of Infectious Disease 
  • Economics of Disease Control and Considerations for Public Health
  • Diagnosis & Innovation during a Pandemic  
  • Vaccine Development & Therapeutics

Esteemed speakers from these fields will be presenting their latest research, and you are encouraged to interact and have your questions answered during the Q&A and panel sessions.

At Merck, our purpose is to solve the toughest problems in life science by collaborating with the global scientific community – and through that, we aim to accelerate access to better health for people everywhere. We look forward to having you join us for this informative and timely event!
