“I don’t feel like I’m taking a risk studying pathogenic disease. I’m fascinated, and I want to take on that fight.” – Morgan Freney, Virologist
In today’s episode, Dr. Shah speaks with Morgan Freney a virologist working at the University of Queensland in a lab that creates vaccines. She’s also pursuing a PhD in molecular virology. If you’re ready to take a deep dive into Coronavirus and what makes it a particularly stupefying threat, then Morgan is your go-to woman. She’s shaking up the world at just 25 years of age, making a significant dent in the education of others, and the development of virus-disabling medicine.
Morgan started working on the Ebola vaccine when women and children were dying in Africa. She also worked on a vaccine for West Nile and Zika. Most recently she’s been attempting to crack a multi-virus vaccine that would crack Corona and other similar viruses – up to 15 at one time!
Morgan has a special way of describing the life-cycle of a virus and what it does to your body so you can understand Corona, and other pathogens more fully. This podcast is an incredibly educational way to get a clear picture of Covid-19.
