Episode 42: Engineering a Canadian treatment for Covid19 – The value created by public research

In this episode we interview Dr. Shane Miersch, a University of Toronto researcher who is part of a team developing a treatment for Covid19. We discuss the vital but often unrecognized and unrecouped value of basic and applied research done in our public post-secondary institutions and how a Canadian treatment for Covid19 goes from the lab to patients.
