These 2 researchers literally saved the world. They should be household names. I don't even know there names after one read.

A lot of research is being done about vaccines (not only mRNA ones) that can neutralize different coronaviruses, in animals it has been shown that making vaccines with recombinant spike proteins incorporating parts of the protein from different viruses can protect against infection not only from those viruses but even others whose proteins were not included in the vaccine.

Making such vaccines with "pre-pandemic" coronaviruses can help not only controlling pandemics that appear, but even prevent news that are on the way of doing the same as SARS-CoV-2.

This article only really covers the more recent developments of the current mRNA vaccines. But the major inventor of the core technology is Robert Malone. Strange that the article does not mention him; perhaps because of his recent comments on the vaccines...

No he is not, that has been debunked a long time ago. Chaning the variety of nucleic acid on a well characterized technique do not make him the inventor of the technology.

The reason he is not mentioned is the same as any of the hundreds other people that contributed. They have nothing to do with developing pan-coronavirus vaccines.

This guy knows his sheet. I heard that at the time studying mRNA was seen as an academic career dead end. Very impressive.

No he is not....

Robert Malone is the major inventor of the core technology, of the mRNA delivery technology and its application to vaccines. He has the papers and patents to prove it.

The reason he is not mentioned is the same as any of the hundreds other people that contributed. They have nothing to do with developing pan-coronavirus vaccines.

They changed the nucleotide sequence of the mRNA, but the core technology is the same.

No, it is not, as proved by the references, you being unable to accept it do not make it false. It only makes obvious you prefer believing things that can be proved false.

They changed the nucleotide sequence of the mRNA, but the core technology is the same.

If that is the excuse the same applies to Malone, he just changed the specific nucleotide being introduced, but the core technology of nucleic acid transfection is still the same.

He is in the same boat as the other hundreds of people whose work made the vaccine possible, expecting all and every of those hundreds to be mentioned is not logical.
