“The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that spectacular advances are possible through an alliance of science, the public sector and industry — creating digital disease control tools, diagnostic tests, and life-saving treatments and vaccines at unprecedented speed.

“This level of innovation and multi-sectoral collaboration must be applied, day in and day out, to prevent another catastrophe like COVID-19,” he added.

The University hopes to raise 500 million pounds to invest in this centre — with contributions from philanthropists, corporate partners and governments.

Oxford scientists were pioneers in developing the COVID-19 vaccine that is being manufactured by AstraZeneca. It was also the second to win authorization for widespread use around the world.
