The University of Ottawa Journal of Medicine
Inspiring leadership and excellence in medicine
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing mandates have caused disruptions across the health care industry. Health care providers have grappled with adapting care and resources to provide physical distancing, from in-person to video conference environments. School closures and curriculum modifications have resulted in limitations to the training of students and residents. Importantly, patients have struggled with cancelled appointments and delayed care, ultimately placing their health care needs at risk.
In this issue, we present a collection of articles centered around innovations in health care delivery and education. Insights, research, and personal experiences are shared by medical staff and trainees, who have dealt with the obstacles presented by COVID-19 or faced the limitations of health care delivery and training in general.

Interview with Dr. Langlois
Dr. Marc-André Langlois, a cutting-edge virologist, Canada Research Chair in Molecular Virology and Intrinsic Immunity, and Professor in the Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Ottawa, received 1 million dollars in Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) funding to develop a nasal spray COVID-19 vaccine.
We had the privilege of meeting with him virtually and having a fascinating and informative conversation on the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccines, and its effect on society.
