The MMA will explore COVID-19 vaccines and their effect on virus variants during a Feb. 24 noon-time physician forum.

The forum, which is free for MMA members, will be led by Gregory A. Poland, MD, director of the Mayo Clinic Vaccine Research Group— a state-of-the-art research group and laboratory that seeks to understand genetic drivers of viral vaccine response and application of systems biology approaches to the generation of immunity. The group also studies the development of novel vaccines important to public health.  

Poland holds the academic rank of professor of medicine and infectious diseases and molecular pharmacology and experimental therapeutics. He also serves as the president of the Edward Jenner Vaccine Society and is the Editor-in-Chief for the journal Vaccine.

The forum will provide an overview of the epidemiology of the COVID-19 variants, as well as explore the COVID-19 vaccines and the effect of variants.
