Lack of Covid-19 vaccine pushes DARPA to develop a therapeutic “Shield”

Lack of Covid-19 vaccine pushes DARPA to develop a therapeutic “Shield”

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF It takes years to develop vaccines, but when pandemics emerge you only have months and that’s not enough time so DARPA are trying to create a therapeutic shield to protect people until they arrive.   Interested in the Exponential Future? Connect, download a free E-Book, watch a keynote,...
