Kate Broderick said: “It became very clear to us that if we started working proactively, that we would be in a good position,” “If you don’t do it that way, you’re always going to be playing catch up, because you’re always going to have to wait to look and see what the virus does next and then generate a vaccine against it”

Kate Broderick said: “We were so excited about the data that we generated,” “It almost was better than we had imagined it could be”

Dennis Burton said: “It’s an interesting concept, but it needs experimental validation,” “DNA immunization has yet to really prove itself in humans”

As the coronavirus mutates, scientists are scrambling to modify vaccines to work better against specific viral variants.
