A COVID-19 vaccine platform that enables rapid production of second-generation vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern has been developed by University of Melbourne researchers.
Partner with us to support funding of GMP manufacture and stage 1 clinical trials for the second-generation COVID-19 vaccine.
A vaccine platform targeting the SARS-CoV-2 receptor binding domain for generating COVID-19 vaccines that can rapidly incorporate emerging variants. The UoM vaccine technology offers potential production and manufacturing advantages including the delivery of abundant, temperature-stable vaccine doses at an affordable cost.
Several SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern have emerged that efficiently escape the neutralising antibody response raised by first-generation vaccines or previous infection. Second-generation COVID-19 vaccine candidates are needed to manage the pandemic.
Researchers have designed appropriate scaffolds for the receptor binding domain to enhance and focus the most effective immunity response against COVID-19. Further preclinical evaluation is currently underway.
