Work on finding a vaccine for the Coronavirus is gaining traction.
A critical part of any new drug is testing on animals. That is happening at San Antonio-based Texas Biomed. Researcher Joanne Turner says, while it’s unlikely that we’ll have a vaccine by the end of the year, they have sped up the process.
Workers at the lab are studying the Coronavirus impact on primates, mice, and guinea pigs. Animal models, such as this, are required by the FDA to bring a vaccine to market.
