It's time for another installment of Teach Me in 10. This week, we're bringing you a two-part series 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.
If you'd like to learn more about Dr Procko's work, you can check out his research page, read this recent interview with Technology Networks, or take a look at his latest publication in the journal Science.
