13. Yes, and Moderna has a lot riding on this

As I understand, they are using new technology, and of course we are all expecting the vast amounts of biomedical and genetic research to lead to new technologies like this.

I believe Moderna had a "head start" in that they were working on a vaccine for a similar virus. What is incredible is that they developed this vaccine based only on published genetic information and not actual viruses (as I understand).

If this is successful, it could be a revolution in vaccine development.
