Following the tradition of World War II’s Rosie the Riveter, compassionate scientists at UT Health San Antonio and The University of Texas at San Antonio are backfilling the front-lines pandemic effort by making hand sanitizer for UT Health care providers.
UT Health San Antonio is supporting multiple research projects in vaccine development. “We are working very fast to attack this problem because until we have a vaccine and a therapy, this virus represents a huge threat to humanity,” Dr. Hromas said.
As laboratories across the country rush to find answers for the novel coronavirus, UT Health San Antonio is bringing a unique combination of expertise to bear on the crisis. The goal is a precise and effective vaccine to prevent infection, said Robert Hromas, M.D., professor and dean of the university’s Long School of Medicine. The university is supporting multiple research projects in vaccine development.
