It remains an inexact science to predict what pathogen will give rise to the next pandemic, and when or where the spill-over to humans will occur. Based on our understanding of past pandemics and the biology of viral pathogens, certain families of RNA viruses are high on the top 10 list. However, predicting which virus variant will emerge from these large and diverse families of potential human pathogens to cause future pandemics remains a challenge unless we are able to develop vaccines that are broadly protective against groups of related viruses. This talk will describe a new vaccine antigen discovery technology that is being developed to address the current COVID19 pandemic, its variants, and future pandemic threats that may arise from the diverse Coronavirus and Influenza virus families.
