It has never been more apparent than now that although medicine has advanced immensely in recent history, there is still work to be done — infectious diseases remain a leading cause of deaths worldwide.
And for diseases, we need vaccines. The University of Pittsburgh has a history of vaccine creation, most notably being home to the lab where Jonas Salk created the polio vaccine.
With the spread of COVID-19, Pitt’s Center for Vaccine Research been tapped by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations to help create a vaccine for the virus. This international collaboration could provide hope in a desperate time.
