Prof Sarah Gilbert: The woman who designed the Oxford vaccine - BBC News

? bbc.co.uk/news/uk-550435…
Sarah Catherine Gilbert (born April 1962) is a British vaccinologist who is Professor of Vaccinology at the University of Oxford and co-founder of Vaccitech.
Gilbert specialises in the development of vaccines against influenza and emerging viral pathogens. She led the development and testing of the universal flu vaccine, which underwent clinical trials in 2011.
In April 2020, Gilbert claimed that with more funding, she could deliver a COVID-19 vaccine by September 2020.
The universal flu vaccine is a flu vaccine that is effective against all influenza strains regardless of the virus sub type, antigenic drift or antigenic shift.
Hence it should not require modification from year to year. As of 2019 there has been no approved universal flu vaccine for general use, but several have been in development...
No approved universal flu vaccine in 9 years but can easily produce a Coronavirus vaccine in no time at all?

"Justice is not a thing less than the measure, but that which fills it to overflowing.

It exceeds the bounds of mortal requirements.

It endures everlastingly and is not denied one who is entombed.

It passes over with the spirit to bear witness.

It is the great brightener.
It is not a thing bought and sold.

Justice cannot be bartered."
"Be ever above price. One worthy of the greatness you reflect on Earth, one ever above mundane things.

Be not as the ferryman who demands payment before his task is fulfilled, who bears upon the water the man who makes payment and no other.

Yet, the wisdom of our fathers did avail them, whatever is said in the streets today.
They have indeed left a memorial worthy of reverence, and they are not without shrines.
The wise words they spoke have not gone down to be eaten by dust, nor have they been carried away on the wings of the wind.

Co-application of fluorescent quantum dot nanocrystals and therapeutics has recently become a promising theranostic methodology for cancer treatment. We developed a tumor-targeted lipid nanocarrier that demonstrates notable efficacy in gene delivery as well as tumor bio-imaging.
Coupling of aptamer molecules against the EGF receptor (EGFR) to the distal termini of lipid nanoparticles provided the carrier with tumor-specific recognition capability.
