Dr. Karla Satchell has been a frequent name in the news as she leads a team of researchers to examine the atomic structure of Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19), an integral step in devising a means for fighting COVID-19 as the virus continues to spread. Satchell leads the Center for Structural Genomics of Infectious Diseases, a consortium of nine labs at eight schools collaborating on the effort to better understand and devise a means for fighting the continued spread of COVID-19. The team is mapping out the proteins of the virus with the aim of finding a weak spot where medication can intervene and stop the virus from replicating in humans.
