“A COVID-19 vaccine being developed by UW-Madison microbiology professor Adel Talaat and his Madison startup, Pan Genome Systems, is adapted from an experimental DNA-based immunization Talaat developed for another coronavirus that infects chickens. The human version has shown promise in mice, according to a study published in February in the journal Vaccines.versity of Wisconsin (UW)–Madison houses an important lab where ongoing research led to an experimental animal vaccine to protect chickens from coronavirus. Upon the COVID-19 outbreak starting late last year, Adel Talaat, who runs a lab at the UW-Madison, recently leveraged the vaccine to advance a candidate for humans. Talaat commenced testing the vaccine on mice last month and also spun-out a startup to commercialize the vaccine.“- Madison.com
