University of New Mexico scientists have begun testing mice for coronavirus antibodies after giving them experimental vaccines.
It’s part of a $250,000 yearlong grant awarded last month to UNM by the National Cancer Institute. David Peabody, a professor in the Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at the UNM School of Medicine, is the principal investigator on the grant.
“It’s part of an effort to use supplementary funding as a way to get money quickly into the hands of people who are working on this problem,” Peabody said.
