Lab Culture Ep. 25: A Conversation with Dr. Rick Bright

Scott Becker, APHL CEO, and Dr. Rick Bright, Rockefeller Foundation's Senior Vice President of Pandemic Prevention and Response

In October 2020, Dr. Rick Bright resigned in protest as director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) because of the Trump administration’s political interference in the COVID-19 response and their efforts to spread dangerous misinformation. Since then, Dr. Bright has joined The Rockefeller Foundation as senior vice president of pandemic prevention and response. Dr. Bright joined APHL CEO Scott Becker for a discussion as part of APHL’s Member Assembly – this episode is a recording of that conversation.
