Dr. Carlos Simmerling on “Using computer simulations to model the SARS-CoV-2 spike glycoprotein and block COVID-19 infection”

On September 22, 2020, Dr. Simmerling discussed the use of computer models to complete the currently unknown, pivotal regions of coronavirus spikes.  Knowing more about these pivotal regions of coronavirus spikes could help with identifying drugs that have the potential to neutralize all coronaviruses.

The online event attracted local, national, and international attendees.  The lecture was not only well-attended, but also ignited a rich discussion on coronaviruses.
