Teach Me in 10 – Engineering a Decoy Receptor for SARS-CoV-2 With Dr Erik Procko, Part II

Video   Sep 07, 2020

 

It's time for part two of Dr Erik Procko's Teach Me in 10 installment. 

Dr Procko has been working on engineering a "decoy" receptor for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that has caused the COVID-19 global pandemic. In the second video of this two-part installment, Dr Procko discusses his research in exploring the mutational landscape of ACE2 to further understand the interaction between the receptor and the S protein of SARS-CoV-2. In doing so, his team were able to scour for mutations that might increase the affinity of ACE2 for the S protein.



If you'd like to learn more about Dr Procko's work, you can check out his research page, read his recent interview with Technology Networks, or take a look at his latest publication in the journal Science.

Part I of Dr Procko's Teach Me in 10 is available to watch here
