Never before have so many scientists in so many countries focused on a single goal with such urgency. More than 180 companies and academic institutions have grounded all other research as they race to create a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 and save millions of lives. This is one of the most important quests of our time - a mission to rescue humankind. Yet creating a vaccine is a stunningly difficult challenge. Normally it takes 15 years. But this isn’t a normal situation, governments have dictated a tense new timeline - just 18 months - despite the fact that scientists are developing the vaccine while also in the midst of fighting the coronavirus. “We’re building the plane as we’re flying it,” declares one researcher. The Global Vaccine Race will document this dramatic race from the inside. We’ve gained unique access to the top researchers in the world – BioNTech/Pfizer, the first team to produce a vaccine; Imperial College London who plan to make their vaccine available to the developing world; Canada’s Entos Pharmaceuticals who are creating a cutting-edge vaccine never seen before; and China’s CanSino who’ve already released their vaccine to the Chinese military. This is a Pre-Sales only title.
