Every month, the Fondation Ipsen’s LiveLab publishes a series of podcasts, taking a cross- disciplinary approach where science tells its own stories. During this special period, Yannick Tanguy questions and answers the legitimate questions that children may ask themselves about the Coronavirus, and the reasons for the lockdown to which almost half of humanity has been reduced to on that day. Olga Markova, a researcher at École Polytechnique, illustrated the remarks.
Yannick Tanguy, PhD in Neuroscience, worked in various domains like gene therapy or neurodegenerative diseases. Today, at Fondation Ipsen, he works as a scientific communicator and develops various media (podcasts, publications, public lectures, videos) for sharing his passion and curiosity for science.
