"A lot of us who do research aspire to have a meaningful impact for human health and the economy with what we do. And UT, with the support of generous donors, provided a foundation for having a real impact with our work. My team had what we needed, and we were prepared when the pandemic hit to provide technology that the U.S. vaccines all use."
