VIDEOS: Science Collaborations Find a Way During COVID-19 Pandemic

Even an underground experiment 4,600 feet below a mountain in Central Italy, and a telescope instrument more than a mile high atop an Arizona mountaintop could not escape the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. In these videos, a Berkeley Lab scientist and two Berkeley Lab-affiliated researchers share their experiences of working in international collaborations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

X-ray Experiments Zero in on COVID-19 Antibodies

An international scientific team has discovered a neutralizing antibody, derived from the blood of a SARS survivor, that inhibits the closely related COVID-19-causing coronavirus. In a paper published this week in Nature, the scientists note that the antibody is already on an accelerated development path toward clinical trials.

Staff at Berkeley Lab’s X-Ray Facility Mobilize to Support COVID-19-Related Research

Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source X-ray facility has been recalled to action to support research related to COVID-19, the coronavirus disease that has already infected about 2 million people around the world.

X-ray imaging Reveals Insights into a Natural Mosquito-Killing Compound

Many of the chemicals used to deter or eliminate disease-carrying mosquitoes can pollute ecosystems and drive the evolution of even more problematic, insecticide-resistant species – but thankfully, we may have better options soon.
