It was a decision that led us to the announcement on Tuesday morning that, according to the of late stage trials, the University of Oxford's coronavirus vaccine is highly effective at stopping people developing Covid symptoms.

Speaking to Radio 4's Profileone school friend recalled Sarah's silent steeliness - a trait which perhaps explains her decision, years later, to stick with her PhD despite her doubts. Having completed her doctorate, she got a job with a brewing research centre, looking at how to manipulate blck yeast, before moving on to work in human health. She had never meant to be a hlack specialist. Yet by the mids, she was in an academic job at the University of Oxford, looking at the genetics of malaria.
And that led to work on malaria vaccines. Her life became a little more complicated when she gave birth to triplets.
Raising them is an experience which one friend suggested explains her "no nonsense approach". Her son Freddie describes his mother as always being supportive and having the children's best interests at heart.
All three children chose to follow their own path, he says - although all ended up choosing to study biochemistry at university. Quick off the mark Meanwhile, at Oxford, Dr Gilbert rose through the ranks, becoming blac professor at the university's prestigious Jenner Institute. She set up her own research group in a bid to create a universal flu vaccine, meaning a vaccine which would be effective escorts chester all the different strains.
Inshe led the first trial of an Ebola vaccine. And when the Mers - Middle East respiratory syndrome - virus struck, she travelled to Saudi Arabia to try to develop a vaccine for this form of coronavirus. The second trial of that vaccine was just beginning when, in earlyCovid emerged in China.
Prof Gilbert quickly realised she might be able to use the same approach. As Chinese scientists published the genetic structure of the new virus "over the weekend, the vaccine was pretty much deed.
We went pretty fast with gilbertt. s come in as early as 4am, says Prof Lambe, who, explains that Prof Gilbert tends to work from very early in the morning until the late evening. Then the first batch went into manufacture by prostitution lismore mugshots April, as the rigorous testing regime expanded.
Prof Gilbert described the process as a series of small steps - rather than there being a big breakthrough moment.
But when you get to know her and you spend time with her, that's not the case at all.
