Curiel developing nasal vaccine against COVID-19

Curiel developing nasal vaccine against COVID-19

David Curiel, MD, PhD, the Distinguished Professor of Radiation Oncology, is co-senior author of a new study working to find a COVID-19 vaccine. Unlike other COVID-19 vaccines in development, this one is delivered via the nose, often the initial site of infection. In the new study, the researchers found that the nasal delivery route created a strong immune response throughout the body, but it was particularly effective in the nose and respiratory tract, preventing the infection from taking hold in the body.
