Drug-Target Dragnet

Inside the virus that causes COVID-19 are thousands of potential drug targets. As part of a global team, Lucio Frydman is hunting for the best candidates.

Lucio Frydman is part of a global team of science detectives leaving no stone unturned in their hunt for a weakness in the virus that causes COVID-19.

The Mystery of the Vanishing Crust

Using a novel technique, researchers uncover secrets hidden deep below the surface of our planet.

The scientists examined hundreds of basalt samples taken along the global ridges that contain recycled ancient oceanic crust in varying amounts. "Depleted" segments of the ridge received less than "normal" amounts of recycled crust, while "enriched" segments contained a larger proportion of recycled crust.

Stemming the Spread of COVID-19

A team of experts believes stem cells could be a route to a fast, effective therapy.

MagLab biomedical engineer Sam Grant is studying how stem cell therapies could be aimed against COVID-19.
