Dr. Srinivas Murthy, a critical care specialist who is also trained in infectious diseases and an investigator at BC Children’s Hospital, is leading new high-quality research on COVID-19 treatment to help Canadians and people around the world.
Human DNA testing could improve outcomes for patients with COVID-19.
That’s the key idea put forth in preliminary research posted this month to bioRxiv that highlights the potential benefits of testing COVID-19 patients for genetic variants of ACE2—the protein identified as the point-of-entry for the SARS-COV-2 virus into human cells.
A team of applied science researchers at the University of British Columbia and BC Children's Hospital have developed a systematic feedback method that could help public health authorities in their efforts to contain COVID-19.
We believe there’s nothing we can’t do with your support. It can take years to turn scientific breakthrough into new interventions and treatments. Funding helps speed the pace of change. When given the resources, we can bring transformative therapies – and hope – out of the laboratory and into the clinic to save and improve children’s lives.
