A New COVID-19 Spit Test Is as Easy as 1-2-3

A New COVID-19 Spit Test Is as Easy as 1-2-3 What if a COVID test was as easy as one, two, three? A team of researchers led by Jim Collins, a biomedical engineer at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, have created a test that detects SARS-CoV-2 infection from

COVID and the Brain: Researchers Zero in on How Damage Occurs

COVID and the Brain: Researchers Zero in on How Damage Occurs How COVID-19 damages the brain is becoming clearer. New evidence suggests that the coronavirus’s assault on the brain could be multipronged: it might attack certain brain cells directly, reduce blood flow to brain tissue or trigger production of immune

CRISPR-Based Anti-Viral Therapy Could One Day Foil the Flu—and COVID-19

CRISPR-Based Anti-Viral Therapy Could One Day Foil the Flu—and COVID-19 CRISPR gene-editing technology has tremendous potential for making non-heritable DNA changes that can treat or even cure a wide range of devastating disorders, from HIV to muscular dystrophy Now, a recent animal study shows that another CRISPR system—targeting viral RNA
