The trial, in which people will be injected with two doses every four weeks, will examine the safety and immune response of the vaccine among volunteers. Researchers will measure their reactions and volunteers will be monitored over a 12-month period. Preliminary results of the trial are expected to be released by the end of September. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said it was an "exciting day" for Queensland.

"The work, through UQ and its scientists, is second to none."The Queensland Government has previously invested $10 million into the study to fast-track its development. 'Advance production of millions of doses'Professor Paul Young, a leading researcher at the university, said it was difficult to determine exactly when the vaccine would be ready but they were aiming for 12 months' time. "To some degree that's a hard end point that we can't define," Dr Young said. "The plan is we're in place by the middle of next year."Dr Young said the move to human trials followed an extensive period of pre-clinical testing that researchers had been conducting since February."This testing showed that the vaccine was effective in the lab in neutralising the virus and safe to give to humans."

"If things go to plan, they'll rapidly advance production of millions of doses and move the program into later stage clinical testing, regulatory approval, large-scale manufacture and distribution," Dr Young said.Coronavirus questions answeredBreaking down the latest news and research to understand how the world is living through an epidemic, this is the ABC's Coronacast podcast.Read more"We'll hold a collective breath while we wait to see how the trial goes."In a statement, Innovation Minister Kate Jones described the research to find a vaccine as "world leading"."This research is putting Queensland on the map," Ms Jones said."The success of our research has the eyes of the world on Queensland.
