Doctors and scientists are in the race to develop a vaccine to cure Coronavirus. A team of professionals from Oxford university are on a project to develop the most important drug of the hour.
An Indian-origin scientist from Kolkata is part of the team. Chandrabali Datta works in the Clinical Biomanufacturing Facility at the university Jenner Institute, where Phase II and III of human trials of the vaccine named ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 are being conducted as a possible tool to fight the deadly virus.
Ms. Chandrabali Datta studied Masters in BioScience (Biotechnology) at the University of Leeds.
Chandrabali's role is very crucial, she's the quality assurance manager, which means it's her job to ensure all levels of compliance are met before the vaccine could move to the trial stage.
As per the reports of NEWS18, Datta said, they're hoping that it'll work on the next stage, the whole world is looking to this vaccine.
It's like a humanitarian cause to be a part of this project. We are a non-profit organisation, putting in extra hours every day just to make this vaccine successful, so that human lives can be saved. It is a massive team effort and everyone has worked around the clock towards its success. I feel honoured to be a part of this project, she further added.
