Researchers at Ohio University recently discovered that disrupting COVID-19’s RNA and its ability to reproduce may be an additional way to stop the virus in conjunction with the vaccine. Jennifer Hines, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and students in her lab utilized the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) to analyze the three-dimensional structure of RNA. After finding a vulnerable nucleotide in the virus, Hines’s lab identified FDA-approved drugs that may disrupt the function of the RNA.
