There's a certain amount of funding and coordination that's always going to be necessary. There are lots of great ideas. There are vaccines that are poised in testing. What we need is to coordinate evaluation of these vaccines in efficacy trials and the funding to do those trials. On the discovery side, we have to have adequate funding for those researchers to develop the new ideas, but also train the next generation of scientists who will take over. If you see our timelines, it's a multi-generational process. So it's about funding and coordination on the efficacy trials side. And it's about funding and education on the discovery side, so that we can follow up on all the scientific advances.
