Mapping Weak Spots on the New Coronavirus: Nanoscale Discoveries Drive Vaccine Development - Front Row Lecture with Andrew Ward, PhD

Understanding the precise structure of a newly emerged virus—such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus at the root of COVID-19—is a critical first step in creating a vaccine.

In this Front Row lecture, Scripps Research structural biologist Andrew Ward, PhD, shares how a revolutionary technique known as cryo-electron microscopy is generating powerful 3-D images of the coronavirus and its interactions with the human immune system, unearthing discoveries that are already shaping the future of medicine.
