Designing A Better COVID19 Vaccine with Nikolai Eroshenko

Could all the leading COVID19 vaccines have a fatal flaw in their design? A dizzying number of vaccines are being developed to protect society from the dangers of COVID19, each with its own benefits and pitfalls. At HelixNano, Nikolai Eroshenko and his team are designing a special type of vaccine with increased attention to ensuring that this protective medicine doesn't accidentally improve the virus's ability to infect cells or drive the immune system to cause collateral damage. Nikolai describes how vaccines work, why so many are being developed to fight SARS-CoV-2, and how technological advances have allowed us to develop them faster than ever before. Most importantly, Nikolai calls on all vaccine developers to put more effort into their design and testing pipeline such that they don’t accidentally help the virus become more deadly.
