The first healthy volunteer has now received a candidate coronavirus vaccine developed by Imperial researchers.
The clinical team, who delivered a small dose of the vaccine to the participant at a West London facility, are closely monitoring the participant and report they are in good health, with no safety concerns.
The volunteer has asked to remain anonymous.
Imperial College London’s vaccine candidate is being developed and trialled thanks to more than £41 million in funding from the UK government and a further £5 million in philanthropic donations.
The trials are the first test of a new self-amplifying RNA (saRNA) technology, which has the potential to revolutionise vaccine development and enable scientists to respond more quickly to emerging diseases.
The best of the Muslim Times’ collection for war against Covid 19:
