IIRC, BioNTech was developing mRNAs for cancer and converted it to a covid vax.  That's why the Pfizer vax was produced so quickly.

BioNTech, the German company that developed Pfizer’s mRNA covid-19 vaccine, is now testing whether mRNAs can be used to treat cancer.

Seems huge, awesome.

I've been thinking (hoping) we would likely make some large medical strides from fighting covid so intensively.
