Searching for ways to combat COVID-19
Every day for months, Teresa Ng has been receiving pop-up notifications of new research reports related to COVID-19 on her computer.
In a way, this is good. She is getting to know her target better every day.
Ng is a 20-year veteran of AbbVie, where she is a principal research scientist and has helped discover and develop antiviral therapies for both hepatitis C virus (HCV) and HIV. Today, she’s bringing that experience to bear during an unprecedented global pandemic. That’s because Ng, like so many other scientists around the world, is trying to answer the call of a lifetime. She’s part of the AbbVie research team that’s looking for a way to combat COVID-19.
