Science explainer: COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy and barriers
Our behavioural researchers explore the barriers, hesitations and motivations to getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
Even with a vaccine, it will take time for life to return to normal
Pfizer and BioNTech begin rolling out their vaccine in Britain next week. But will life return back to normal? Dr Rob Grenfell explains.
What shapes our science? Our people
As we look at the past year's research efforts and the future of science, our people are firmly at the centre of it all.
Vaccine progress report: the projects bidding to win the race for a COVID-19 vaccine
The race is on to develop a vaccine for the COVID-19 coronavirus. Australian researchers are leading several major clinical trials that might help bring an end to the deadly disease.
From our lab to you: manufacturing a COVID-19 vaccine
How do we produce a COVID-19 vaccine that is safe, effective and can be mass-produced? We take you into our labs to find out!
Outbreak ready: working to prevent human and animal disease
Our scientists continue their important work safeguarding human and animal health from disease, while we strive for a COVID-19 vaccine.
Antivirals, antibiotics or vaccines: what are our options for tackling COVID-19?
We take a closer look at the different vaccine and treatment options being used to tackle COVID-19. And explain what they all mean.
Two vaccine candidates tested at ACDP
We’re testing two COVID-19 vaccine candidates for their efficacy at our Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness (ACDP).
Meet our COVID-19 researcher: Tram Phan
Tram Phan is making the vaccine proteins that will be used in The University of Queensland’s COVID-19 vaccine candidate. She gives us the low down.
Genomics joins the fight against COVID-19
Our scientists are analysing the genetic makeup of COVID-19 to help fast track the development of vaccines.
A cattle vaccine saves our steak in history
Vaccines are not just for human diseases. They also protect animals. Read how our work in the 1930s helped protect cattle from the devastating disease bovine pleuropneumonia.
