Dr. Yen Wah Tong of the National University of Singapore will attempt to fabricate nanoscale, imprinted particles that can capture viruses, effectively preventing them from infecting cells. These non-toxic and biocompatible polymers can then be excreted from the body. This synthetic equivalent to natural antibodies would eliminate the need for a human immune response and resulting mutations of the virus' DNA.
