ABSTRACT

Powering Vaccine R&D: Opportunities for Transformation   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Foreword: "The release of this report, 'Powering Vaccine R&D [research and development]: Opportunities for Transformation', by the Sabin-Aspen Vaccine Science & Policy Group coincides with a monumental achievement -- the rollout of immunizations aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] across the globe. Faced with the most devastating pandemic in a century, the scientific community built on a decade of prior research to bring vaccines into use in record time. That is both a cause for celebration and an impetus to develop more and better vaccines for both pandemic and endemic infectious diseases. [...] COVID-19 informed our thinking, of course, but this report examines many disease-causing pathogens in considering the need for vaccines. Our goal is to glean important lessons about what has worked well in the past, and where systemic gaps remain."
