Imperial College London is a London-based institute of higher education. It is a STEM-based university that offers educational programs for both undergraduate and postgraduate students and conducts research.
The college developed an RNA-based vaccine for COVID-19 during the pandemic. The vaccine was approved to be tested on animals where studies showed that the animals began producing antibodies that neutralized the virus after being given the vaccine. The college has received funding to continue developing the vaccine but has not been yet approved for human trials.
