The Slovak Liaison Office for Research and Development is hosting an online informal lecture by Norbert Žilka, PhD titled 'From Alzheimer`s disease therapy to COVID-19 prevention - When an out-of-the box vaccine approach can stop a global pandemic'.

Join the session for an open discussion and informal online lecture by Norbert Žilka, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of the Slovak company AXON Neuroscience that is developing a promising vaccine candidate against COVID-19.

Dr. Žilka will provide his first-hand experience with the development of the established peptide-based vaccine platform to produce a novel COVID-19 vaccine- COVIDAX, intended to protect healthy individuals from infection.

You will hear interesting facts on peptide vaccines representing a promising alternative to conventional vaccine approaches, particularly given their safety profile, speed of development and ease of production. What exactly might be a competitive advantage over conventional vaccine strategies.
