The dean of UFMG, Sandra Goulart, met in Brasília this Wednesday (7) with deputies from the Minas Gerais bench in search of help to continue testing a vaccine called 100% Brazilian.
The university currently develops seven immunizers and one, named Chimera Proteica, is in an advanced stage.
She wants parliamentary amendments and help to pressure the Ministry of Science and Technology to fund resources. UFMG aims to raise approximately R $ 30 million.
“If I don’t have the financial support to enter clinical phases 1 and 2, we have to stop. For us it is essential, we have to produce a national vaccine, ”said Sandra to the Panel.
