Behind the Scenes of the Development of a COVID-19 Vaccine Suitable for Global Access

For the last two decades, the National School of Tropical Medicine and its Center for Vaccine Development in Houston, Texas has operated with the mission to develop and test new low-cost and effective vaccines against emerging and neglected tropical diseases, build capacity for vaccine development locally and with foreign nations and guide and influence vaccine policy and advocacy. This approach relies on the need for international diplomacy, solidarity, and cooperation.

This webinar will provide a behind the scenes vignette of how to build leadership in the vaccine sciences, an overview of the vaccine development process and highlight a case study of how a COVID-19 vaccine, suitable for global access, was developed and is currently advancing towards achieving emergency use authorization for distribution and global access.

Attend this webinar to gain an insight to:

  • The research and manufacturing of innovative vaccines against emerging and neglected tropical diseases
  • The importance of leadership in the vaccine sciences
  • How vaccines gain emergency use authorization for distribution and global access
