A special thank you to Matt Lalli, a postdoc in the Mitra and Milbrandt Labs, Xuhua Chen, the lab manager in the Mitra Lab, Josh Langmade, a staff scientist in the Mitra Lab, and Michael Wilkinson, a graduate student in the Mitra Lab, who worked throughout the lockdown period to develop a faster, cheaper way to test for SARS-CoV-2. If all goes well, you will have your saliva tested using this method in the near future. Their work was done in collaboration with the Milbrandt and Buscher labs and the McDonnell Genome Institute (MGI).
