Product Details

What’s the connection between a 900-pound teddy bear and a lifesaving COVID-19 vaccine? It’s Katalin Karikó, a Hungarian biochemist who rose from humble beginnings to become a Nobel Laureate through decades of labouring in obscurity.

When most researchers doubted the usefulness of messenger RNA, she persisted in her belief in its potential which led to a completely new type of vaccine. Along the way she and her husband raised a daughter who was a two-time Olympic gold medal athlete. AJA’s Michael Allen will relate the remarkable story of her life as told in her autobiography.
