Themis Bioscience is a Vienna-based company with a focus on utilizing technology that it has developed to advance vaccine candidates for various infectious diseases. The company states that its Themaxyn platform allows for researchers to rapidly identify and develop vaccines.
The company worked in collaboration with the Pasteur Institute during the COVID-19 pandemic. The role of Themis Bioscience was to provide scaling and manufacturing services once its partners had developed and tested a vaccine. The time frame for when the manufacturing will take place is unknown.
CEPI issued an urgent call for $2 billion of new funding to enable the organisation to expand the number of COVID-19 vaccine candidates in development and to fund the clinical trials for these candidate vaccines.
CEPI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, today added an eighth COVID-19 vaccine candidate to its portfolio. CEPI will invest an initial US$4.9 million in a partnering agreement with the Institut Pasteur-led consortium that will include Themis and the University of Pittsburgh to develop a vaccine candidate against COVID-19.
