UC Irvine professor Lbachir BenMohamed, PhD, director of the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Immunology at the university’s Gavin Herbert Eye Institute, and his colleagues are developing a preemptive vaccine for all coronaviruses with a multi-million-dollar grant from the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Because coronaviruses can mutate, experts at UCI have developed a vaccine that will attack the spike protein and additional proteins in SARS-Cov-2.
