After dropping beauty pageants for science, former Miss England Carina Tyrrell spent the past year spearheading Covid studies at Oxford University.
Dr. Tyrrell, 31, is part of the Oxford team working to ensure that it is safe enough for the correct coronavirus vaccine to be rolled out.
Her team was responsible for working on the AstraZeneca vaccines for Pfizer, Moderna, and Oxford.
Dr. Tyrrell has worked closely with scientists and doctors to find the most effective vaccine to ensure that it has the right funding.
Speaking about her efforts, CarinaTyrrell said it is her responsibility to ensure that nobody is left out and ensure that everyone will be successful.
Tyrrell said: I looked at all of the vaccines with the team, and a few months ago we published a piece of work.
We looked at 728 studies at the time. Looking at the AstraZeneca vaccine from Pfizer, Moderna, and Oxford.
I looked at the vaccine and clinical therapeutic trials that were seeking to find the most successful candidates for vaccine and therapy.
And of course, to make sure that the vaccine is appropriate to particular consumer groups.
When you have different ethnic groups, genders, health problems within a community – so it’s trying to make sure that no one is left out.
It takes years to authorize a vaccine and we managed to do that in a year.
It is truly a testament to the efforts of the research community, health professionals, and everyone involved.
I have been the lead for the policy work writing some of the policy and a research paper that will be published in the British Medical Journal.
It’s about how we manage people presenting with Covid-19 in hospitals when we are struggling with capacity and managing the surge of people attending hospitals.
Despite her hard work, Tyrrell said she’s really in favor of the race for both Miss World and Miss England.
That same year, Tyrrell also ranked fourth in Miss World and said she still judges the Miss England contest.
She said: I still really respect both Miss World and Miss England, and I’m still judging the competition for Miss England.
But I didn’t think I’d be part of a team looking for a vaccine for six years during a global pandemic on this scale.
It’s obviously being rolled out now and it’s fantastic that all the hard work has paid off.”
