Public Summary

We are developing an imaging technology to visualize the interaction between SARS-CoV-2 virus and the host cells. And using this technology, we are screening and repurposing existing drugs to inhibit the viral interaction with the human cells. By this way, we are hoping to find a quick therapy to block viral infection to humans.
