A Zoonose Anticipation and
Preparedness Initiative & Boehringer Ingelheim Veterinary Research Center paper highlights that a way of dealing with the threat of another pandemic is investing in plug-and-play vaccine technologies that can respond to a wide variety of virus types

Ma et al. from the Institute of Human Virology in Guangdong construct two Ferritin-based nanoparticle vaccines that conjugate RBD and HR antigens in SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein utilizing the SpyTag/ SpyCatcher system. RBD and RBD-HR nanoparticles vaccines elicit more potent neutralizing antibody responses and stronger T cell immune responses than monomers. HR-containing nanoparticles induce cross-reactive immune responses against other coronaviruses
