In the latest installment of the Lasker Public Lecture series, immunologist Arturo Casadevall guides listeners through the history and science behind convalescent plasma and antibody therapies. His talk focuses upon the role that convalescent plasma therapy can play in the fight against Covid-19.

You can view the recorded lecture below. It was originally presented live on September 23 and was co-hosted with the Secret Science Club, a non-profit dedicated to fostering connections between research scientists and the public.

This special lecture was supported by an anonymous donation made in honor of Lasker Foundation board member Alfred (Al) Sommer, recipient of the 1997 Albert Lasker Clinical Medical Research Award and Dean Emeritus at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Lasker Public Lectures promote dialogue between curious, engaged individuals and some of the most accomplished scientists in the world.
