Outstanding publications

This section is dedicated to share publications previously approved by the CoReVac steering committee as major contributions to the field. In line with the CoReVac objective to stimulate the french vaccine community, papers from french teams will be prioritised. But as we also try to extend the CoReVac network to an european level, we will open the section to european papers and we are encouraging you to send us and share any oustanding papers you can think about.
