How worrisome is Omicron? Are the vibes off in biotech? And does the Theranos verdict really matter?

We cover all that and more this week on “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. First, emergency room physician Craig Spencer joins us to talk about how the Omicron variant is impacting New York City and what the coming months have in store. Then, we look ahead to the New Year in biotech with a preview of the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference. We start with a look at the latest news in the life sciences, including Elizabeth Holmes’ guilty verdict and the ongoing Aduhelm saga.

For more on what we cover, here’s the latest on Omicron; here’s more on Holmes; here’s the news on Aduhelm; here’s where you can subscribe to the First Opinion Podcast; and here’s our complete coverage of the Covid-19 pandemic.
