How can plants be utilized in humanity's fight against COVID-19? That's the topic for this week's installment of Teach Me in 10, where we're joined by microbiologist Dr Kathleen Hefferon from Cornell University.

But advances in modern technology are truly advancing plant-based therapeutics for applications in medicine today for a variety of diseases. In this installment of Teach Me in 10, Dr Hefferon talks us through the concept of plant-based therapeutics and focuses specifically on her research exploring plant-based vaccines for COVID-19.
