    Hey guys!

    Have you looked into the major investment into Novavax this past week? They are well through phase 1, and working into phase 2 of vaccine testing after $1.6 Billion Funding from Operation Warp Speed through the federal government.

    What are your thoughts on the phases of development?

    What political leverage was used to fund this trial versus others in phase 2 or 3?

    What is your understanding on the immunology base of vaccine MOA?

    Phil,

    It is interesting that the funding went to Novavax for the development of the COVID vaccine. This probably has to do with capability and record. Some of the other smaller research labs are a little farther in their clinical trials but might not have the best study design, producibility, or MOA that would fit the new data.

    Do you know what the phases are?
