    Milken Institute Teams with First Person to Explain the Race to a COVID-19 Vaccine

    The race to a COVID-19 Vaccine

    WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– The Milken Institute, the nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank, and First Person, a San Francisco design and storytelling company, together tell the urgent story of the global race for a COVID-19 vaccine in a newly released interactive experience at:ย https://www.covid-19vaccinetracker.org/.

    Developed by First Personยฎ, the web-based tool is the culmination of a nearly three-month long effort tracking treatment and vaccines candidates for COVID-19 undertaken by FasterCures, a center of Milken Institute. When it first launched, FasterCures identified 38 vaccine candidates. As of today, there are 161 vaccines in development, with 10 in clinical trials.

    โ€œDeveloping a safe vaccine that can be widely accessed is both necessary and extraordinarily complex,โ€ saidย Esther Krofah, Executive Director at FasterCures. โ€œWe are thrilled that First Person has been able to bring our comprehensive vaccine tracker to life in a way that educates the public and gives the medical research community a new tool to better understand the race toward a COVID-19 vaccine.โ€

    The interactive platform is updated regularly and takes the viewer through a narrative including:

    • An overview of the number of vaccine candidates currently in development
    • A timeline of vaccine development and how vaccines work
    • The steps for taking a vaccine from ideation to commercialization, and then to widespread use

    “Our intent with this project was to answer the question of how long it would take to develop a COVID-19 vaccine,โ€ saidย Drew Fieroย President and CEO of First Person. โ€œThe comprehensive, neutral, and consistently updated data from FasterCures allowed us to leverage our storytelling capabilities to do just that through a visually compelling, interactive experience.โ€
