Are the Eterna solutions from the OpenVaccine RNA stabilisation challenge going to be end up to be part of COVID-19 vaccines?

Now that Pfizer vaccines are out I’d wonder whether all the Eterna solutions from the OpenVaccine RNA stabilisation challenge (including my LEIA 6 at the round 1) are part of the vaccines’ ingredients.

We weren’t able to complete the research and publish the results fast enough to change the first round of vaccines. But the Pfizer vaccine, with its extreme refrigeration requirements, is a prime candidate for being improved by our research. Even more importantly, by making the research results open, rather that proprietary, it will enable the creation of a whole new generation of vaccines that can treat the world-wide pandemic, not just the populations of the richer nations.
