A Scientist without Borders and Her Struggle to advance Vaccines for the Neglected: A Conversation with Maria Elena Bottazzi | NOV 17

Thursday, November 17, 2022

5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

In 2022, Italy-born and Texas-based biologist Maria Elena Bottazzi has been nominated by Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher to the Nobel Peace Prize for her work to develop (with Dr. Peter Hotez) and distribute a low-cost COVID-19 vaccine without patent limitation to all people of the world. Fletcher motivated the nominee in this way “Dr. Bottazzi’s effort to develop the Corbevax vaccine is truly one of international cooperation and partnership to bring health, security, and peace around the world. It is a contribution that is of the greatest benefit to humankind.” In a conversation with students, professors, and the entire community, Dr. Bottazzi will discuss her motivations, inspirations, and the challenges of her endeavor to help the underprivileged and heal the world globally.
