In recent years, various emerging virus infections, including Nipah virus, have caused great damage. Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) is an innovative international research support organization aimed at supporting the development of preventive vaccines against infectious diseases that threaten human health. Focusing on the efforts of the CEPI Nipah virus vaccine project, which was first adopted from Japan, we will discuss the development of preventive vaccines against the threat of lethal virus infection.
