Timid research doesn't save lives. On Nov. 30, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center brought several fearless scientists into conversation with the community in its latest Science Says virutal event.
Trevor Noah, comedian and host of "The Daily Show," talked with three Fred Hutch researchers working to end cancer and COVID-19. Noah's interviews were followed by a special live Q&A led by Fred Hutch President and Director Dr. Thomas J. Lynch Jr. covering the latest on the omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus. Lynch talked to Hutch scientists about what we know and don't about the variant's origins and potential for immune escape, and how effective current and experimental drugs may be against it. Watch the omicron Q&A in the video above, and follow the latest on what Hutch scientists are saying about omicron on Fred Hutch News and by following the Hutch on Twitter.
