It's time for another installment of Teach Me in 10. This week, we're bringing you a two-part episode with Dr Erik Procko from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

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 first video of this two-part installment, Dr Procko explains exactly what a decoy receptor is, and how this strategy could be adopted in fighting SARS-CoV-2.
