Meanwhile, as a familiar lecturer at Van Lang University's Faculty of Technology, Dr. Ha Thi Beach Ngoc (Pasteur Institute, Ho Chi Minh City) provides a lot of useful information about the application and especially achievements of Biotechnology in Vietnam in medicine and pharmacy such as gene diagnostics, gene therapy, production of drugs and vaccines. Besides, she also helps students and teachers clearly understand  vaccine development platforms and vaccine technologies that Vietnam recently introduced to vaccination, such as AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer,... With advances in Biotechnology, Vietnam has also conducted research in the process of introducing two vaccines: Nanocovax and Covivac. Hopefully, thanks to the efforts of the research group and advances in Biotechnology, Vietnam will start using these two vaccines soon.
