05/20/2020

The next webinar on "Vaccine development for COVID-19" will be presented on Wednesday May 27, 2020 at 03:00 PM CEST by Hanneke Schuitemaker.

Hanneke is the Global Head of Viral Vaccine Discovery and Translational Medicine and the Disease Area Stronghold Leader for Viral Vaccines in Janssen Vaccines and Prevention. In addition, she is a Professor in Virology at the Amsterdam University Medical Center.

On January 12, 2020, the publication of the genetic code of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, triggers Janssen Vaccines to start the development of a prophylactic COVID-19 vaccine. The seminar will capture Janssen’s vaccine design, preclinical evaluation, production of clinical trial material for phase 1 studies and in parallel the ‘at-risk’ ramp-up of large scale manufacturing at unprecedented speed without cutting on safety. In addition, an overview of the field will be provided.
