Translating scientific challenges into preclinical research solutions

There is a high risk of emerging/reemerging pathogens with pandemic potential which poses challenges for the pharma industry to develop appropriate intervention strategies like vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, and antivirals in a timely manner. Teaming with an experienced partner which provides research solutions helps to mitigate some of those challenges and to minimize timelines of the preclinical phase. Animal models, molecular testing methods, and cell-based and functional assays will be discussed.
