22 in review: A toast to the future – of universal vaccines

Vaccines are still our best weapons against epidemics and pandemics. But some of the viruses that are the largest pandemic threats remain able to outmaneuver vaccines, mutating and giving rise to variants that the vaccine-generated immune response does not see. The result is a continued need for annual flu vaccines and continuous SARS-CoV-2 vaccine updates. In her story, BioWorld Staff Writer Mar de Miguel describes what makes some viruses so tough to vaccinate against, and how researchers are developing vaccines that could finally protect against such shapeshifters with a one-and-done shot.

  • Awards for Publication Excellence in the Design & Illustration category:
