Illuminating Immunity to COVID-19 with Susanna Elledge

COVID-19 tests have become synonymous with jamming a swab up our nose to find out whether we have an active infection. But as we progress through this pandemic, a test that tells us whether people have antibodies against the virus will be massively important to creating public health initiatives and deciding who to vaccinate next. Unfortunately, these serology tests are exceedingly tedious to perform, inhibiting their widespread use. Realizing this problem, Susanna talks us through how she utilized protein engineering to create a novel serology test that is massively easier and quicker than traditional methods. Importantly, this test can be used in resource low settings to help end the pandemic worldwide.
