Vaccine Development for Novel Coronavirus Response
June 18, 2020 at 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM
The spread of SARS-CoV-2 and the resulting COVID-19 pandemic has had wide-reaching effects that require a multifaceted response. Accelerating vaccine development and distribution is a key component in responding to this emerging pathogen. Vaccine development typically takes decades from research and development to implementation, so having licensed and approved vaccines available for mass distribution in a 12-18 month timeframe would be unprecedented. However, advances in science along with new manufacturing platforms may allow the development of new vaccines against COVID-19. This session will discuss current efforts underway to develop vaccines to combat this public health threat.
