Our Goals

The Vaccines and Therapeutics Co-operative programme aims to:

  1. Help develop research expertise and capabilities in virology and vaccinology;
  2. Establish a pre-clinical ecosystem for easy access and rapid deployment of relevant technologies and expertise; and
  3. Deliver pre-clinically validated therapeutics/ vaccine technologies/platforms that are ready to enter clinical development.

Our Strategy

The Vaccines and Therapeutics Co-operative will support use-inspired research on priority pathogen families, as well as pathogen agnostic vaccine and therapeutic platforms through its strategic open grant calls, commissioned studies and partnerships with local biotech sector and multinational pharma companies.
