Dr. Helen Dooley Featured in the Sydney Morning Herald
Congrats to Dr. Helen Dooley for the great coverage of her research in the Sydney Morning Herald! The article describes her work, injecting sharks with COVID-19 vaccines and testing their immune response. But why does she use sharks? Dr. Dooley explains, “Sharks are kind of the furthest we can go back in evolutionary time and still see a human-like immune system. Anything that’s in their immune system that’s the same as ours has been protected for 500 million years of evolution. That means it’s really, really important.”
