Mathematical models and computer simulations are the new frontiers in COVID-19 drug trials

Posted on

The new models open the possibility of pre-assessment for drug and vaccine efficacy against the COVID-19 virus.

Researchers are using computer models to simulate COVID-19 infections on a cellular level – the basic structural level of the human body.

The models allow for virtual trials of drugs and vaccines, opening the possibility of pre-assessment for drug and vaccine efficacy against the virus….
