Ex­clu­sive in­ter­view: Pe­ter Marks on why full Covid-19 vac­cine ap­provals could be just months away

Pe­ter Marks, di­rec­tor of the FDA’s Cen­ter for Bi­o­log­ics Eval­u­a­tion and Re­search, took time out of his busy sched­ule last Fri­day to dis­cuss with End­points News all things re­lat­ed to his work reg­u­lat­ing vac­cines and the pan­dem­ic.

Marks, who qui­et­ly coined the name “Op­er­a­tion Warp Speed” be­fore de­cid­ing to stick with his work reg­u­lat­ing vac­cines at the FDA rather than join the Trump-era pro­gram, has been the face of vac­cine reg­u­la­tion for the FDA through­out the pan­dem­ic, and is usu­al­ly spot­ted in Zoom meet­ings seat­ed in front of his wife’s paint­ings.
