Thapelo Tefu curriculum vitae


I'm an innovator, a scientist. I've created a universal enveloped virus vaccine. It's a vaccine against enveloped viruses such as HIV, influenza, coronaviruses, herpes and many more. I identified a part that is common in all enveloped viruses and made a vaccine with it. I've tested the vaccine multiple times in an animal against different types of enveloped viruses and it works. I've calculated its effectiveness and it's highly effective. It's 80% effective. However, I would love to create and test the vaccine once again in a proper lab with other scientists, just to confirm my work and research. I would also be happy if I can get an opportunity to present my idea and work. An opportunity to get my vaccine out there. An opportunity to work with other scientists and innovators
