Spotlight on COVID: How engineering is contributing to vaccine manufacture

In this Spotlight on COVID interview, Harris Makatsoris, Professor of Sustainable Manufacturing Systems at King's College London, discusses how his novel process of intensification technology for vaccine production has helped to scale up production of the COVID-19 vaccine substances discovered by his fellow scientists. His innovative ‘factory-in-a-box’ solution enables vaccines to be manufactured quickly where they are needed, such as in hospitals.

For this work, The Royal Academy of Engineering has awarded Professor Makatsoris with the President's Special Awards for Pandemic Service for exceptional engineering achievements in tackling COVID-19 throughout the UK.
