“We can’t thank Viralgen enough for their exceptionally generous and valuable contribution. This donation will help us support treatments that have the promise and power to transform the lives of children in need.
Manufacturing often costs millions, and Viralgen’s contribution of capacity will help us with our mission to accelerate treatments for kids who are battling not only a life-threatening disease, but also time.”
