CLEVELAND — All over the world, researchers are moving quickly to find a vaccine for the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.
Giant leaps are being made right here in Cleveland at Case Western Reserve University.
An international team of scientists, including Blanton Tolbert of Case Western Reserve and his team of researchers, are on the forefront of developing a way to slow down the spread of the coronavirus.
