SK bioscience CEO Jaeyong Ahn said: “We expect a synergy combined with our capability in developing the world´s first quadrivalent cell culture-based influenza vaccine and the infrastructure of the Doherty Institute, a leading research institution on global infectious diseases.

“We will strengthen global partnerships with various organisations and continuously expand cooperative areas to establish a response system against infectious disease pandemics in the world.”

“By collaborating with SK bioscience, we will strengthen our ability to respond to global challenges through exchanging knowledge and fostering innovation.

“Together, we will make a lasting impact in the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases, like influenza, around the world.”
