It’s inspiring to think that a 14-year-old student may have discovered a treatment for COVID-19 that could also help prevent this type of pandemic in the future.
Her name is Anika Chebrolu from Frisco, TX and is one of the country’s top young scientists. She recently won $25,000 for an annual contest called the Young Scientist Challenge. She won the contest for her work on a molecule that could potentially bind to coronavirus proteins and make them inactive.
Amazing. These are the type of brilliant young minds that will keep us healthy and shape our world for generations to come.
