Vaccine Research & Development

Vaccine Development can be defined as an activity that focuses on a variety of technological initiatives and applied research, which enhance and promote improved systems and practices for vaccine safety. In recent years, the unprecedented Ebola disease outbreak galvanized research and industry response and as we continue to search for solutions, we must review the lessons learned to overcome the current challenges. As it is a long and complex process often lasting 10-15 years, it requires the combination of public and private involvement. The current system for developing, testing, and regulating vaccines developed during the 20th century as the groups involved has standardized their procedures and regulations.
