In the Monday edition of Coronavirus Medical Update with Tracy Taylor, there are three big stories in the search for a cure.
At the University of Louisville in Kentucky, researchers have developed a technology based on an aptamer, which is a piece of synthetic DNA. They believe this could block out the coronavirus.
The University of Washington has been in the news a lot lately, and now researchers and some of the students have developed a contract tracing app. Before you get worried about your privacy, your privacy will be maintained.
And there’s a new study happening at Fred Hutch with Dr. Michael Boeckh. Essentially, the study will find out how long a person who encountered the virus can shed the virus, and if you can be re-infected.
Hear more about all of these stories on the :40s on KIRO Radio during the Coronavirus Medical Update.
