Kayla Hannon was in the trenches at Moderna when the company faced a once-in-a-century manufacturing challenge to produce a billion doses of vaccine at the height of the COVID pandemic. On those front lines, she played an active role in the advent of a surge manufacturing strategy that she now espouses as Manager of Process Engineering at TFF Pharmaceuticals.
