Dr. Catherine Green is an Associate Professor at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics, University of Oxford and the Monsanto Senior Research Fellow at Exeter College, Oxford. She also heads the Clinical BioManufacturing Facility (CBF) for the Nuffield Department of Medicine. The CBF has, in collaboration with scientists at the Jenner Institute, over the last 15 years made many novel vaccines for clinical trials, covering diseases including malaria, TB, influenza, MERS, Zika, rabies and Ebola (among others). Cath’s team has been an integral part of the University's project to develop a vaccine against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19, in record time. The CBF made the first batch of clinical material that was used in Oxford's COVID-19 vaccine trials and continues to support these trials. She was awarded an O.B.E. in 2021 in recognition of these efforts. With Prof. Sarah Gilbert, she wrote Vaxxers (pub. Hodder & Stoughton): The Inside Story of the Oxford AstraZeneca Vaccine and the race against the virus.
