India’s first indigenous mRNA (Messenger RNA) vaccine technology to fight against Covid-19 has been developed by the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) and Council Of Scientific And Industrial Research (CSIR).

Among the leading vaccine technologies available today to fight Covid-19, mRNA vaccines are among the best.

The world witnessed the power of the first mRNA vaccines during the Covid-19 pandemic. Vaccines work by training our immune system to identify disease-causing microorganisms and eliminate them quickly when they encounter them subsequently.

This is achieved with mRNA vaccine technology by introducing an mRNA of the micro-organism of concern.

This mRNA in the host cells gives rise to the microbial protein or a part of it, which trains the immune system to evade it when the real infection happens with the same live microorganism.

CSIR-Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) is leading the development of mRNA vaccine technology in India.
