Fauci’s non-retirement, grading biotech VCs, & a bellwether IPO

Are we getting Covid-19 boosters wrong? Which venture capitalists are missing their marks? And what’s Anthony Fauci’s legacy?

We cover all that and more this week on “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. Our colleague Helen Branswell joins to explain the Covid-19 booster debate, the Biden Administration’s monkeypox response, and the long career of the soon-to-step-down Anthony Fauci. We also discuss the latest news in the life sciences, including a milestone for gene therapy, the tentative return of an IPO market, and the venture capital league table.

For more on what we cover, here’s the news on Fauci; here’s more on the monkeypox response; here’s the latest on polio; here’s where you can find the VC report; here’s where you can find episodes of Color Code; here’s where you can subscribe to the First Opinion Podcast; and here’s our complete coverage of the Covid-19 pandemic.
