Featuring Francesco Cambuli, PhD, a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

September 12th, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm at the Education Lab, Jerome L. Greene Science Center


In the last 70 years or so, vaccines have saved millions of lives. They are among the most effective, safest, and cheap medicines ever discovered by humankind. Still, questions about vaccines resonate across our communities and in the media. Do vaccines cause autism? Are they harmful? What about their ingredients? Is vaccination a personal choice? In this talk, Francesco will present the basic facts about vaccines, discussing these and many other questions. Communities need vaccines, and vaccines need communities.
