The Oxford Vaccine Centre’s COVID-19 vaccine trial is being run by the Jenner Institute and Oxford Vaccine Group. The team, who started work on developing a vaccine to prevent COVID-19 on 20th January 2020 is led by Prof. Sarah Gilbert, Prof. Andrew Pollard, Prof. Teresa Lambe, Dr Sandy Douglas, Prof. Catherine Green and Prof. Adrian Hill.
The clinical trial is being conducted in collaboration with multiple study sites across the UK.
Our researchers are working with great care, and due haste, to get this vaccine ready to be used in the clinical trial. We ask that the media do not continue to contact researchers while this critical work is underway, and to use the media contact form for press enquiries.
