The Sixth Chula VRC Vaccine Research Forum 2022

The Sixth Chula VRC Vaccine Research Forum 2022 in topic "mRNA/LPN Technology-The Discovery for Global Health" by honorable speakers of Prince Mahidol Award 2021 Laureates: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Karikó, Prof. Weissman and Prof. Cullis

Associate Professor Katalin Karikó and Professor Drew Weissmen who have been working side by side in developing mRNA technology and its applications in medicine and using mRNA technology to develop COVID-19 mRNA vaccine. They have also played an important role in the rapid development of COVID-19 mRNA vaccine by the new technology. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Karikó and Prof. Weissman has led to the rapid availability of COVID-19 mRNA vaccine, which has saved millions of lives and become an important tool for the control of COVID-19 pandemic around the world.

Professor Pieter Cullis is a pioneer in lipid nanoparticles, which have been used for various applications in medicine. This technique has been successfully deployed to develop the delivery system of mRNA vaccines, which are being used to control the COVID-19 pandemic. He not only made COVID-19 mRNA vaccines possible but has also created a way to safely deliver nucleic acid into cells, which opened up possibilities for various applications of nucleic acid technology for prevention and treatment of many other diseases in the future.
