Researchers at Penn State create a protein that could be utilised to create a COVID vaccination.

The infection is still spreading to many Americans.

Recently created proteins, according to Penn State researchers, may break that cycle.

The proteins, known as immunogens, may be able to defend against new Covid-19 variants as well as other coronaviruses.

The proteins were created using parts of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that are less prone to mutation.

The goal, according to Penn State professor Nikolay Dokholyan who spoke to the Tribune-Review, is to develop a vaccine that is universal and strain-independent.

The current covid-19 vaccines focus on mutagenic regions of the virus' spike protein.

The conserved portions of the spike protein are the target of the Penn State-engineered immunogens.

This research, which started immediately after the pandemic in 2020, was funded in part by a $50,000 donation from the Huck Institutes.
