Hear from BioNTech Co-Founder and CEO Ugur Sahin about the rapid development process of the world’s most sought-after vaccine, together with Pfizer, and the long-term potential of mRNA-based therapies. Mayfield Fund’s Ursheet Parikh will join Sahin to discuss what’s next for startups in this rapidly evolving industry.
