SUPPORT OXFORD’S COVID-19 VACCINE RESEARCH
Funding for Oxford’s COVID-19 vaccine research requires unprecedented speed, scope and ambition. Support from Government, corporations, trusts and foundations will be crucial to the development of a vaccine to combat the new virus. Alongside those traditional sources of funding, philanthropic donations of any size will have real and rapid impact, allowing us to accelerate this time-critical research, and ensure that Oxford’s vaccine solution will be as effective and swift as possible.
