Editor Reflections on Vaccinology eSymposia with Nature, Frontiers, JEM & EMBO Journals


Back in July, Keystone Symposia launched our new virtual eSymposia series with the timely “Vaccinology in the Age of Pandemics: Strategies Against COVID-19 & Other Global Threats.” The inaugural event garnering global interest from over 1700 participants, from 44 countries worldwide, and attracted editors from leading journals eager to discover the latest advances, directions and strategies in vaccine development against COVID-19.

In this panel discussion, editors from Nature, Frontiers, EMBO and JEM reflect on the eSymposia experience. They discuss the new challenges posed to the scientific community by COVID-19, but also how new tools and technologies can be leveraged to communicate, connect and continue to drive science forward despite the pandemic. Looking forward, they envision how these new tools might be used to our advantage to extend the reach of science and expand scientific circles, ultimately benefiting science, medicine and the communities they serve.
