Stemirna has a candidate vaccine targeting the novel coronavirus, causing the illness COVID-19, which began animal testing in February 2020. The mRNA vaccine was co-developed by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Shanghai-based Tongji University School of Medicine and Stemirna.
