Vaccine trials among recipients of £20 million coronavirus research investment

Six coronavirus research projects, including two vaccination trials, will be the first to benefit from a share of £20 million in government investment.

Two government-backed projects will receive new funding, enabling pre-clinical and clinical vaccine trials, as well as supporting researchers to develop manufacturing processes to produce a vaccine at a million-dose scale. Other projects receiving funding examine how existing treatments could be repurposed to treat coronavirus, developing antibodies to help target the virus, and examining how people at greatest risk of catching it could be identified.
