You don’t have to be a scientist to do science! Download and play Foldit, and you can help researchers discover new antiviral drugs that might stop coronavirus. The most promising solutions will be manufactured and tested at the University of Washington Institute for Protein Design in Seattle. Foldit is a revolutionary computer game enabling you to contribute to important scientific research. Join us online for an introduction to citizen science, to learn more about summer reading, and to learn how to participate in this citizen science project through a presentation and online Q&A. Meet Brian Koepnick of the Foldit project. He'll be in conversation with Charlene Nichols, Children's Librarian at the Watts Branch Library at the Los Angeles Public Library. Join us on Zoom and submit your own questions on the Q&A/Chat features during the event. This event is supported by the Watts Branch Library at the Los Angeles Public Library, the Network of the National of Libraries of Medicine, All of Us, and SciStarter.
