A Thai Start-Up is Working on a COVID-19 Vaccine — Using Tobacco Leaves

Thailand’s Baiya Phytopharm wants to develop the country’s first plant-based COVID-19 vaccine. The start-up, founded by Dr. Suthira Taychakhoonavudh and Dr. Waranyoo Phoolcharoen in 2018, has been working on a vaccine using the leaves of an Australian tobacco plant. Cool!
