Launch of the Vaccine Development Process Map
Vaccine Development Process Map
The MRC, BBSRC and Department of Health have launched a vaccine development process map to show the key stages in vaccine development. The map was developed by the UK Vaccine R&D Network to faciliate understanding of the key stages in vaccine development and importantly, where bottlenecks could potentially delay progress.
The UK Vaccine R&D Network have also produced a summary of key points to guide decision making in the context of an emergency response to an epidemic or pandemic and carried out case studies to highlight where bottlenecks in vaccine development occur in response to an outbreak.
