Dr. Genevieve Kanter joins Deep Background to make sense of the existing research and weigh in on the booster approval process.

Dr. Kanter is an economist and Research Assistant Professor in the University of Pennsylvania Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy. Her research focuses on the regulation of biomedical technologies, industry influence in medicine, and statistical methods used for causal inference.
