Why not produce locally a patent free COBERVAX a vaccine we can actually produce much safer than the trendier mRNA? lots of funds for research and we're not aware of this? Try checking suppressor T cells eliciting vaccine? , as booster, instead of antigen b cells eliciting, but wanes in certain number of weeks?

Gabriela Baron The Department of Science and Technology Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) said it is eyeing to fund a total of 304 research projects in 2024 to boost the country’s economic progress and coronavirus disease (COVID-19) response. Of the 304 research projects, 204 will be funded through the PCIEERD Grants-in-Aid (GIA) worth P3.25 billion, and 100 will be funded under the DOST GIA worth P3.54 billion, for a total of P6.79 billion. The project covers 21 priority areas namely, energy; construction; utilities; transportation; food; process; mining and minerals; metals and engineering; advanced materials and nanotechnology; optics and photonics; information and communication technologies. It also covers areas including electronics; artificial intelligence, space technology application, convergence of emerging technologies/industry 4.0 and smarter cities, environment, disaster risk reduction-climate adaptation, as well as unmanned vehicle system, creative industries, and science communication. “We encourage our researchers and innovators to answer our call. The pandemic has put almost everything at a standstill, thus the need to continuously make solutions through science-backed projects that would aid us to bounce back in the new normal,” Dr. Enrico C. Paringit, DOST-PCIEERD Executive Director, said. Paringit added that this funding opportunity primarily encourages science and technology (S&T) collaboration and applied research among Higher Education Institutes, government Research and Development Institutes, and non-profit S&T networks and organizations seeking funding for their R&D/S&T initiatives. Submission for research proposals will run from March 1 to 31. Approved proposals will be announced on June 8.
