Synopsys: In early 2020, Dr Archer (Queen’s University, Canada) proposed a novel mechanism for the way in which the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for COVID-19 might affect our lungs. He proposed that this virus causes damage to cells by targeting the powerhouse of the cells, structures known as mitochondria. Dr Archer has spent the last two years building an international and diverse team of scientists to perform research that tests his hypothesis which provided a new understanding of coronavirus infection. In this podcast recorded for the Queen’s Translational Institute of Medicine (TIME), we will invite Dr Archer and members of his team to walk us through this innovative research.
