520    "Winners of the Paul Ehrlich Prize The dramatic story of 
       the married scientists who founded BioNTech and developed 
       the first vaccine against COVID-19. Nobody thought it was 
       possible. In mid-January 2020, Ugur Sahin told Özlem 
       Türeci, his wife and decades-long research partner, that a
       vaccine against what would soon be known as COVID-19 could
       be developed and safely injected into the arms of millions
       before the end of the year. His confidence was built upon 
       almost thirty years of research. While working to 
       revolutionize the way that cancerous tumors are treated, 
       the couple had explored a volatile and overlooked molecule
       called messenger RNA; they believed it could be harnessed 
       to redirect the immune system's forces against any number 
       of diseases. As the founders of BioNTech, they faced 
       widespread skepticism from the scientific community at 
       first; but by the time Sars-Cov-2 was discovered in Wuhan,
       China, BioNTech was prepared to deploy cutting edge 
       technology and create the world's first clinically 
       approved inoculation for the coronavirus. The Vaccine 
       draws back the curtain on one of the most important 
       medical breakthroughs of our age; it will reveal how 
       Doctors Sahin and Türeci were able to develop twenty 
       vaccine candidates within weeks, convince Big Pharma to 
       support their ambitious project, navigate political 
       interference from the Trump administration and the 
       European Union, and provide more than three billion doses 
       of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine to countries around the 
       world in record time. Written by Joe Miller-the Financial 
       Times' Frankfurt correspondent who covered BioNTech's 
       COVID-19 project in real time-with contributions from 
       Sahin and Türeci, as well as interviews with more than 
       sixty scientists, politicians, public health officials, 
       and BioNTech staff, the book covers key events throughout 
       the extraordinary year, as well as exploring the 
       scientific, economic, and personal background of each 
       medical innovation. Crafted to be both completely 
       accessible to the average reader and filled with details 
       that will fascinate seasoned microbiologists, The Vaccine 
       explains the science behind the breakthrough, at a time 
       when public confidence in vaccine safety and efficacy is 
       crucial to bringing an end to this pandemic"--|cProvided
