With many concluding that a vaccine is the only way of safely and effectively unlocking the world from this pandemic, the COVID-19 Oxford Vaccine Trial could provide that crucial vaccine.

This work is funded by the Rapid Research Response initiative set up by UK Research and Innovation, and by the Department of Health and Social Care through the National Institute for Health Research and the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre. The study has also received financial support from the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations and the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences’ Innovation Fund.
