Researchers in Texas have answered the world’s call and stepped up to partner with the greater research community to help combat the spread of the COVID-19. From reworking a vaccine meant to combat SARS nearly 20 years ago, to collaborating with other labs in Texas and around the world, to trying to secure new answers on how COVID-19 spreads and how communities should react, our state’s scientific leaders are working around the clock to find answers and mitigate harm.
