An application led by the Jenner Institute for a new Vaccines Manufacturing Innovation Centre has been awarded £66 million through the UK government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF). The UK’s first-ever dedicated Vaccines Manufacturing Innovation Centre will create cost-effective ways of developing and manufacturing vaccines for global distribution, as well as ensuring the UK’s preparedness in the event of pandemics of infectious diseases such as Ebola and Lassa. The centre is expected to open in 2022, with the first products from the centre expected later that year. The centre will be built in Oxford, creating more than 50 jobs in the local area.
The Medical Sciences Divisional Panel has conferred the title of Professor on Associate Professor Simon Draper and the title of Associate Professor on Dr Teresa Lambe, Dr George Warimwe and Dr David Wyllie. They have all been awarded these titles in recognition of their distinction in their respective fields and contributions to the research, teaching and administration of the Department and we congratulate them on their success.
