Innovation Overground: Innovations in COVID-19, part III (244)

Listen in as the gang channels the four Shrinking Walls OF THE PRISON THAT IS A MAN’s MIND into a calm rational discussion of just how dang hard it is to make vaccines. Tyler lightens the mood with a glimpse into the near future, where autonomous networks of CRISPR armed robots read the next emerging pandemic viruses inside our cells and synthesize a vaccines on demand—possibly administered in our Soylent Green—to make social distancing a kitschy retro sitcom gag.  Featured Technologies: Vaccine timeline (https://theconversation.com/what-needs-to-go-right-to-get-a-coronavirus-vaccine-in-12-18-months-136816); vaccine platform (https://www.unemed.com/product/vaccine-platform ); UPenn vaccine (https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2020/05/05/coronavirus-vaccine-upenn-testing-new-unproven-genetic-technology-that-could-be-faster-than-traditional-vaccine-development/)  Hosts: Charlie Litton (@charlielitton); Tyler Scherr (@dare2scherr); Joe Runge (@EntreprenurialW)   Sponsor:  UNeMed (https://www.unemed.com); @UNeMed Music: Countdown to Myocardial Infarction, by Peter Gresser.
