Since the 1980s, the Gamaleya Center led the effort to develop a technological platform using adenoviruses, found in human adenoids and normally transmitting the common cold.
The Gamaleya Center successfully developed and registered in 2015 two vector-based vaccines against Ebola fever
using the adenovirus vector platform. The vaccines have been officially approved for use by the Russian
Health Ministry. Аbout 2,000 people in Guinea received injections of Gamaleya vaccines in 2017-18.
Gamaleya Research Center received an international patent for Ebola vaccine.
