Scientists at Brookhaven National Lab search for COVID-19 cure

Scientists at Brookhaven National Lab are working to find out which drug molecules can block COVID-19 from attaching to human cells and replicating.
Researchers are also using computers to pinpoint findings for scientists around the world.
“I am 100% sure science will solve this problem,” said John Hill, director of Brookhaven Lab’s National Synchrotron Light Source II and chair of the lab’s COVID-19 working group told Newsday. “And we could well be part of that solution — either something that directly comes out of Brookhaven or something that somebody works on because they heard about what we did.”
BNL is one of 10 labs across the country overseen and primarily funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
