Is Moderna misunderstood? Can Biogen turn a profit in Alzheimer’s disease? And what went wrong with the latest Covid-19 pill?

We cover all that and more this week on “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. Wall Street Journal reporter Gregory Zuckerman joins us to share some behind-the-scenes details from race to develop a Covid-19 vaccine, the subject of his new book. We also discuss the latest news in the life sciences, including Biogen’s failure to launch, the plight of a Covid pill, and a headline-grabbing statement from one of biotech’s most famous scientists.

For more on what we cover, here’s where you can pre-order Zuckerman’s book; here’s the news from Atea Pharmaceuticals; here’s the latest on Biogen; here’s more from the HLTH conference; here’s where you can subscribe to the First Opinion Podcast; and here’s our complete coverage of the Covid-19 pandemic.
