Just as the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic was an unprecedented occurrence, so too was the global collaboration to enable rapid design and execution of intervention strategies during a time of tremendous need. Decades of basic virology research, including SARS and influenza studies, primed the research community for propelling vaccine development. The momentum continues, notably in areas of viral surveillance and life cycle, to unlock complexities of viruses and stay prepared for future outbreaks.
Virology researchers benefit from exploring new methods in accelerating detection of viral pathogens, such as leveraging nucleic acid detection technologies like loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) and paring with reverse transcriptase. Learn about RT-LAMP reactions and how researchers are using it for SARS-CoV-2 research and surveillance.
