Definition of barriers and drivers of an effective vaccine development ecosystem
MMGH supported the Wellcome Trust in mapping and sizing the factors influencing vaccine developers’ decisions in progressing along the development pathway: from transition into Phase II clinical trials to early commercialisation.

The output of the work was discussed at the Sabin-Aspen Vaccine Science & Policy Group in September 2020.
