Never Give Up: Dr. Kati Karikó and the Race for the Future of Vaccines

Growing up in a small Hungarian town, Kati Karikó was curious about everything. She even chose the Science Olympics over going on vacation! As an adult, she channeled her curiosity into her work as a scientist. Her constant questioning led her to ask: could messenger RNA, or mRNA, be used to create new vaccines? An mRNA vaccine had never been made before, and she faced frequent criticism and was told by other scientists she would never succeed.

After many years of hard work and dedication, she figured out how to use mRNA to make a vaccine ― and when a deadly virus called COVID-19 started infecting millions of people, Kati’s invention turned out to be exactly what the world needed. Never Give Up is the inspiring true story of a determined scientist who proved that a little bit of curiosity and a lot of hard work can save lives.
