Oxford Vaccine Group and Jenner Institute
The Oxford Vaccine Group and the Jenner Institute are two research teams at the University of Oxford who joined forces to fight coronavirus by developing a vaccine in record time. The Oxford Vaccine Group is based in the Department of Paediatrics and is a team of doctors, nurses and scientists, who have been developing vaccines for 30 years to improve child health around the world, and providing the evidence that underpins much of the NHS immunisation schedule. The Jenner Institute works on vaccines to fight HIV, TB and malaria, and has programmes on many other disease including germs that cause outbreaks, like coronavirus. We were nominated for the award in recognition of our efforts to develop a vaccine for covid-19.

This is fantastic news. It's vital we recognise the incredible contribution of the Oxford Vaccine Group to our ability to fight coronavirus. We must celebrate their achievements. I hope they win!
