Aurobindo Pharma announced an alliance with the Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council or BIRAC, which was set up for developing the COVID-19 vaccine. Aurobindo has supported the establishment of the r-VSV vaccine manufacturing platform created by BIRAC.

Aurobindo is already in the process of developing a vaccine for COVID-19 via its wholly-owned US subsidiary, Auro Vaccines. The vaccine candidate being worked on currently is based on a proprietary vaccine delivery platform of the company.

Aurobindo is setting up state-of-art manufacturing for viral vaccines which will be used to produce the COVID-19 vaccine and many more. BIRAC has reposed its trust on Aurobondo for its vaccine capabilities, considering its experience in commercialization of vaccines.

Apart from Aurobindo, other pharma names like Bharat Biotech, Serum Institute, Zydus Cadila, Panacea Biotech, Indian Immunological and Biological E are the other pharma companies that are already working on the Coronavirus vaccine.
