Norwich students quiz “Naked Scientist” on vaccines

A Level Biology students at Notre Dame High School in Norwich have interviewed “Naked Scientist” Cambridge Medical Consultant Dr Chris Smith, via Zoom about the challenges faced by scientists in creating a Covid-19 vaccine.

Chris is Medical Consultant at Cambridge University and Addenbrooke’s Hospital and specialises in clinical microbiology and virology.  He also co-presents the Naked Scientists and 5 Live Science on BBC Radio 5 Live.

The students were amazed to discover the challenges faced by scientists in understanding Covid-19.

Dr Smith also answered their questions on the science behind the latest vaccines being developed by Pfizer/BioNtech, Moderna and the University of Oxford.

Thanks were given to Mrs Bird for organising such an inspirational opportunity for Notre Dame students to learn the vital role that biologists are playing in combatting Covid-19.
