In 2016, the first vaccine clinical trial of Sanofi Pasteur CYD66 Dengue vaccine (Dengvaxia) was conducted at the site. Subsequently, the clinical research unit has been involved and sought by different clinical research organizations (CRO) and pharmaceutical companies in several vaccine and drug trials such as Abbott for Flu vaccine, Synermore for Rabies vaccine, Pfizer antimicrobial, MSD for RSV vaccine and the most recent, Clover Biopharmaceuticals Inc. for COVID-19 vaccine.
The clinical research unit has been cited already in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal for the conduct of Dengue vaccine.
