We are currently developing a vaccine against the coronavirus based on our mRNA technology that is especially suitable to provide a rapid response to this viral outbreak situation. All our internal efforts are focused on this challenge with the goal to reach, help and protect people all over the globe: We declared COVID-19 our core project.
With our mRNA technology, we instruct the human body to activate its own defense mechanism. To that, we use the natural messenger substance mRNA that contains the construction manual needed to produce proteins. We program this messenger substance with the information about one protein of the coronavirus and inject it into the human body. The body recognizes the protein produced by our cells as something unknown and activates its immune cells to produce antibodies and T-cells against it. In this way, we imitate the natural viral infection and activate the endogenous defense system.CureVac
