Vaccines Task Force permits institutes to share bio-specimen

NEW DELHI: The Vaccine Task Force (VTF) set up by Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) for research on Covid-19 vaccines has permitted research institutions and laboratories to use the samples of the patients for research and development (R&D) purposes. Proper guidelines have been framed by the government for sharing of bio-specimen and data research amongst institutions.

The letter dated April 22 has mentioned that “The joint committee will examine each request where the R&D objectives and protocols are clearly presented and defined. Field applications and deployment of the R&D results will need necessary subsequent approvals following due process.”
