How can we use research to mitigate the health consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic – and minimize the risk that we will have to experience something similar in the future?
These are some of the questions that will be asked in the first season of the Forskningsfortællinger podcasts (in Danish). In six episodes, the podcasts will focus in depth on specific example of the knowledge we have accumulated on COVID-19 and the indirect effects of the pandemic so far.
The first episode focuses on antibodies and why these are important in combatting COVID-19 and in developing vaccines.
The guests include Søren Riis Paludan from Aarhus University and Peter Garred from Rigshospitalet and the University of Copenhagen. The two professors are collaborating on a major ongoing research project investigating which antibodies the body stores after someone has COVID-19.
The Forskningsfortællinger podcasts are the audio voice of Sciencenews.dk and are available at Apple Podcasts, Spotify and elsewhere.
