Operation Warp Speed
Operation Warp Speed (renamed the COVID-19 response operation in January 2021) and the multi-agency initiative’s central goal – to develop, produce, and distribute 300 million doses of a safe and effective coronavirus vaccine by January 2021 – required a deep knowledge of science and how to manage complex government operations while navigating a challenging pandemic. In August 2020, prime contract research organization (CRO) Pharm-Olam and Geneva were selected by the Department of Defense to support Phase 3 clinical trials for one or more vaccine candidates.
