Good News!! (& happy stories), June 6, 2020

Real science is amazing.

Last year, Stanley Qi, an assistant professor in the departments of bioengineering, and chemical and systems biology, at Stanford University and his team had begun working on a technique called PAC-MAN—or Prophylactic Antiviral CRISPR in human cells—that uses the gene-editing tool CRISPR to fight influenza.

But that all changed in January, when news of the COVID-19 pandemic emerged. Qi and his team were suddenly confronted with a mysterious new virus for which no one had a clear solution. “So we thought, ‘Why don’t we try using our PAC-MAN technology to fight it?’” said Qi.

That’s one way to do it.
