#AskAScientist with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Peggy Hamburg

Written by: The Exchange

#AskAScientist is a down-and-dirty, shot-at-home, short video series of uncertain duration and frequency in which our friends talk to scientists who answer their most pressing questions about the state of the state in science. Our first installment features Joseph Gordon-Levitt asking the Foreign Secretary of the National Academy of Medicine, Peggy Hamburg, about COVID-19 and what makes it different from other diseases.
