David Dodd: Thank you. And good afternoon, everyone. And again, thank you for participating in the 2022 first-quarter update call. First quarter marked a transformational period for GeoVax in that we achieved clinical stage development status within the two priority areas of COVID-19 vaccine development and cancer immunotherapy.

- The Phase 2 COVID-19 vaccine, CM04S1, and the universal Coronavirus vaccine candidate, CMO2, are each multi-antigenic COVID-19 vaccines, designed to strongly induce both antibody and cellular immune responses.
- One of GeoVax’s goals with CMO4S1 is to provide a vaccine that gets ahead of the variants versus having to chase the variants.
- Since acquiring the rights of Gedeptin® treating for Advanced Head and Neck cancer, GeoVax has confirmed two additional clinical sites.
