Ziccum – “Let’s set vaccines free”

An interview with: Göran Conradson, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Ziccum – an innovative vaccine formulation company 

Prepared by Anna Dé and Shayda Moyassari 

Introduction

It’s WHO World Immunization Week 2021 and the theme this year is “Vaccines Bring us Closer”. This event is celebrated every year at the end of April to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease. Immunizations save millions of lives every year and it is widely recognised as one of the world’s most successful health interventions. Yet, there are 20 million children in the world today who miss out on vital vaccines through the life course.


Ziccum is a game-changing Swedish start-up company that is developing new thermostable versions of the world’s most urgently needed, life-saving vaccines. The company’s patented technology, LaminarPace, enables the production of new, gently air-dried formulations that can be transported easily and cost-effectively, with no need for a costly and complicated cold chain. Now more than ever in the context of COVID-19 vaccines, we can see the barriers the cold chain pose to vaccine access and delivery, particularly to the world’s most vulnerable and war-torn regions. 

 

We asked Göran Conradson about this revolutionary vaccine technology, its impact and how Ziccum can contribute towards World Immunization Week 2021.  The full podcast can be listened to below.
