Interview with Proteona CEO Andreas Schmidt on how single cell seq can help in the fight against coronaviruses

Innovative AI-driven proteogenomic analysis company applies single cell analysis expertise to developing treatments for COVID-19

The current global health crisis demands teams to put their best tools together and act quickly. Without an effective treatment for COVID-19, new therapies targeting the SARS-CoV-2 virus are in urgent need.

Single cell sequencing technology is one of the latest scientific breakthroughs. How can this powerful platform be used to combat today’s pandemic?

Proteona has recently announced that it is leading a global alliance to develop a neutralizing antibody against coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19. The key technology used are Proteona’s single cell analysis platform and AI data analytics.

At 10am GMT+8 April 4th, listen to Proteona CEO Dr Andreas Schmidt explain the science behind in a live interview.
