Receive USD 4 Million Award from The Wellcome Trust for Development and Clinical Trials Hyderabad, India, June 18, 2012: Bharat Biotech and The University of Maryland Center for Vaccine Development (“CVD”) announced today a significant milestone achievement– receiving a USD 4 Million Strategic Translation Award from The Wellcome Trust for clinical development of a new conjugate vaccine including initial clinical trials beginning in three years to prevent the potentially lethal infectious disease caused by invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella (NTS).
