During this forthcoming consultation global experts will review the available evidence, enumerate knowledge gaps, and outline research priorities related to pan-sarbecovirus vaccines. The objectives of the meeting are to:
o Review scientific advances and development approaches to enable the development of a pan-sarbecovirus vaccine.
o Outline novel approaches for evaluation of pan-sarbecovirus vaccines, including in the context of the different variants of concern.
