Setting it Straight: Talking about COVID-19?
Laureate Professor Peter Doherty will be “Setting it Straight” on all things infection and immunity in a new weekly column.
In his first article published this week, Professor Doherty explains: “Rather than just go over the territory that’s being explored thoroughly in podcasts, TV, radio, print and online articles, I’ll take a different tack in my column, aimed at providing a deeper level of familiarity with what’s happening and what’s being discussed.”
