A USC research team is working on a vaccine for the coronavirus, the university announced.
The team is trying to isolate human antibodies that successfully fight the viral infection in order to create working therapeutic treatments to improve recovery times for COVID-19 patients, according to researchers.
Pin Wang, a professor of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Biomedical Engineering, is leading the research team.
Wang said the team is “hoping we’ll have a very potent product compared to other vaccine platforms.”
Wang’s potential vaccine is known as a vectored vaccine and does not contain the harmful components of original viruses, which has safety benefits.
