Improving Vaccine Production to Aid in Pandemic Response

Alan Neal of CBC/Radio-Canada spoke with The Ottawa Hospital’s Dr. Jean-Simon Diallo, a BioCanRx network investigator, about his research work during the COVID19 pandemic. His team is working on improving the way viruses grow in cells so they can help to produce vaccines more efficiently. Although viruses can sometimes be helpful in vaccines and curative therapies, the body sees them as a threat, and this creates a challenge in their manufacture: The cells they grow in will eliminate them!
