14 Year Old Girl Made Discovery That Could Cure Covid-19

Anika Chebrolu from Texas won the 2020 3M Young Scientist Challenge for a discovery that could lead to potential Covid-19 therapy.  Her winning invention uses in-silico methodology to discover a lead molecule that can selectively bind to a protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. 

Anika said, “My effort to find a lead compound to bind to the spike protein of the virus this summer may appear to be a drop in the ocean, but still adds to all these efforts.”
