STAY CURIOUS: Professor Ali Salanti has been awarded a special Semper Ardens grant to develop a vaccine against Covid-19. Like most of the world’s vaccine researchers, Ali Salanti and his research team at the University of Copenhagen aim to develop a vaccine strategy that targets the so-called Spike protein of the coronavirus. The Spike protein enables virus take-up into the cells of the human body by binding to a receptor called ACE2. With a vaccine, the researchers try to prevent these binding events.
