Tonix expand its collaboration with Columbia University
Recently the company announced the expansion of its research partnership with Columbia University. The partnership is for studying COVID-19 immune responses in healthy subjects who have recovered from the virus or are asymptomatic and investigating in vitro antibody and cell responses to SARS-CoV-2. The research seeks to fill vital gaps in the understanding immune response to COVID-19 and offer a foundation for customizing therapeutics and vaccines.
CEO Seth Lederman said, “Based on the progress and results of the initial phase of these projects, we are excited to expand our research collaboration with Columbia University on these precision medicine technologies and also to potentially develop new monoclonal antibody therapeutics. Data from this collaboration may provide a roadmap and tools to potentially guide the selection of appropriate individuals for COVID-19 vaccine trials and to help determine which vaccine is appropriate for each individual based on the condition of their immune system or other physiological features.”
