Moderna Announces Funding Award

COVID-19 pandemic came along with many questions, including its cure because it is a virus for which there is no cure. Scientists have to find a solution for it.

Moderna is one of the companies fighting to get a vaccine working for the population but making this vaccine could be costly.

Recently, Moderna announced a funding award from CEPI to help accelerate the development of the new type of Messenger RNA vaccine to fight Coronavirus.

We will examine this deal and talk about Moderna’s Messenger RNA vaccine, which is extremely new to science.

Moderna Messenger RNA (mRNA) Vaccine

Messenger RNA vaccines are extremely new, and few people know this type of vaccine and how it works.

The majority of people have problems accepting mRNA vaccines because up until the COVID pandemic, nearly all of the vaccines that we used on our bodies were RNA vaccines, but Messenger RNA vaccines work with different science and aim to help better than RNA vaccines.

So Moderna is aiming to be a pioneer in creating a novel Coronavirus mRNA vaccine by advancing its Messenger RNA1 science.

They have been developing and doing clinical tests for years, and also six Phase 1 clinical tests for mRNA came back positive with their vaccine modality in mRNA science.

In a nutshell, mRNA can perfectly mimic the natural infection into the body by actually giving a combination of small doses of the virus.

This creates a more solid immune response by using several messenger RNAs together for the vaccine.

Messenger RNA science helps to respond quicker in an emergency like the COVID pandemic because traditional RNA vaccines take more time to develop.


Vaccine Funding Agreement

As Moderna has already been working towards the development of mRNA vaccines, they are one of the companies that could potentially find the first vaccine for the COVID pandemic.

That is why Moderna just secured a new agreement to help them develop and accelerate these new mRNA vaccines to fight the deadly Coronavirus.

The agreement will involve CEPI to fund the research and also the vaccine development, along with the Vaccine Research Center working with Moderna to design the vaccine.

They will help to make the clinical research and studies as part of the development.


Protection Against Coronavirus

Since mRNA science is extremely new, the research and the studies to make sure that the vaccine works in the way Moderna intends and actually protects from Coronavirus, it might take a while to see results, but the Phase 1 results show good protection against Coronavirus which could mean a successful mRNA vaccine by Moderna is on its way to the markets.


The Verdict

In conclusion, Moderna is one of the leading companies in the world to conduct research and conduct experiments on the new vaccine science called Messenger RNA that aims to create more efficient and quicker vaccines in terms of an emergency, different than traditional RNA vaccines.

CEPI just signed an agreement with Moderna to fund the development of the first mRNA vaccine.
