ISV Paper of the Year - 2020

We are pleased to announce the 2020 ISV Papers of the Year.

Like every year, papers were nominated and selected by the ISV Fellows and Board. However, as 2020 was no ordinary year, ISV recognized the vaccine community’s remarkable response to COVID-19 with nominations made in two best paper categories – COVID-19 and non-COVID-19.
