Developing a Vaccine to Coronavirus

Our CEO Orla Dolan explains the process of developing a vaccine and gives an update on where we are now, in the development of a vaccine for the Coronavirus. Like with any clinical trials Breakthrough Cancer Research is part of, she outlines the 3 of 4 phases of clinical trial needed before a vaccine or drug can be approved for widespread use.
