How are regional mutations becoming a factor in the SARS-CoV2 Pandemic and will they affect the vaccination role out? Tune in as I spill the molecular tea.

Barstool Biology - Immunology & Vaccines
Immunologist Dr. Andrew Hogan is the first guest on Barstool Biology, to discuss all things immune systems.

And with so much anticipation for a vaccine, we describe why these treatments can take so long to get into patients and the types currently in clinical trials. Herd immunity, what is it and is it a viable option without a vaccine? Andy gives us the low down.
