Clinical Studies

VACCELERATE Clinical Studies

Clinical trials serve the purpose of clarifying open questions regarding new vaccines, therapies or medicines. By participating in clinical trials, you can make a major contribution to scientific progress. As a study participant you support the research of diseases and the development of new treatment options and at the same time receive comprehensive medical care.

VACCELERATE is carrying out three COVID-19 vaccine trials. The results will be linked here as soon as they are published.
