Beginning in late March, Edelman and Culpepper led the MIT initiative to develop and mass-produce low-cost face shields and donate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from campus entities to front-line health workers and hospitals in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The two will discuss these efforts and other ongoing research at MIT to address the crisis. They will field questions from alumni viewers in this interactive forum.
