RESEARCH
Early results show COVID-19 vaccine is safe, generates immune response
An investigational vaccine designed to protect against COVID-19 was generally well tolerated and resulted in production of both binding and neutralizing antibodies in healthy adult volunteers, according to early results of an ongoing phase 1 trial. Emory was one of two U.S. sites where the vaccine was tested.

 

SUPPORT

INSIGHT
Candler faculty help establish guide for eventual worship reopening safety
Faculty at Emory’s Candler School of Theology were integral to compiling a guide outlining how congregations can eventually move forward with in-person worship — but do so safely. The guide is available in both English and Spanish.

 

IMPACT
Vaccine additives can have implications for flu and SARS-CoV-2
An Emory Vaccine Center study provides guidance on how adjuvants might become part of a proposed “universal” flu vaccine and potentially optimize immune responses against SARS-CoV-2.

 

NATURE
Beautyberry leaf extract restores drug's power to fight 'superbug'
