Meeting 2022 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Moving Forward from a Pandemic: How the Field of Materials Science Has Adapted (2022 Student-led Symposium)
Presentation Title Learning from the Pandemic
Author(s) Justine Johannes, Gilbert Herrera, P Randall Schunk, Jeffrey Nelson
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Justine Johannes
Abstract Scope The pending threat of COVID-19 to our families and mankind at large, motivated the technical community to act with urgency to understand challenges, assemble the appropriate teams and deliver solutions to counter threats facing the medical community. This presentation will focus on fast response solutions that leveraged a breadth of capabilities and partnerships to address significant supply-chain issues for critical medical supplies, develop key manufacturing and re-use technologies and identify longer term solutions to enable efficient vaccination approaches. This work was conducted under a maximum teleworking posture, with minimal in-person meetings, driving a shift in work execution, communication approaches, and partnership challenges. The opportunity to learn from these recent experiences and understand what it will mean for the future of materials science and how work is executed will be discussed.
