COVID-19 has affected people across the globe and scientists are racing to find ways to treat this new infection. One possible way to develop therapies that battle COVID-19 could lie in cancer immunotherapy tools. These tools and the data they provide might help scientists better understand how COVID-19 appears on the surface of cells and how the immune system can eliminate it.
