Our latest DRC Board of Advisors event focused on COVID-19 vaccine development and regional biotech. We were joined by Deputy Director of Vaccines & Human Immunobiology at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Dr. Lynda Stuart, Chairman of Lyda Hill Philanthropies Lyda Hill, and CEO of LH Capital/Lyda Hill Philanthropies Nicole Small. Thanks to presenting sponsor UT Southwestern Medical Center and corporate sponsor Balfour Beatty for their support of this timely conversation. Watch the video or read the recap from the DRC’s Gloria Salinas.

Here are three key takeaways on the global race for a COVID-19 vaccine, the future of Pegasus Park, and the Dallas Region’s role in biotech:

      • Global Health Starts at the Community Level
      • Dallas Region Viewed as the “Third Coast” in Biotech Arena
