#MasonScience COVID-19 research, led by CAPMM’s Lance Liotta, has found that those with antibodies from being previously infected with the virus have an immune system strong enough to fight the virus again. This research also shows that the COVID-19 vaccine is a strong booster to the human immune system’s ability to combat the virus.

For more information on Liotta’s and George Mason University CAPMM’s COVID-19 research, visit: https://www2.gmu.edu/news/2021-03/mason-covid-antibody-testing-shows-lot-promise-bodys-ability-fight-virus

Today is #WorldHealthDay and this year's theme is building a fairer, healthier world. COVID-19 has shown us that access to healthcare systems is critical, especially in times like these. However, COVID-19 has also shown the reality of unfair conditions around the world. Large groups of people struggle with access to clean water, food, education, employment opportunties, and especially healthcare. As @WHO has stated "This is not only unfair: it is preventable". Let's join @WHO to promote a fairer and healthier world for all.

Continuing with our celebration of #WomensHistoryMonth, we showcase the achievements and research of leading #WomenScientists. Today’s spotlight is #ClaricePhelps. Clarice Phelps is a nuclear chemist at the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory who made history by becoming the first African American woman to contribute to the discovery of an element in the Periodic Table (117) Tennessine. Clarice Phelps is the program manager for Ni-63 and Se-75 industrial use isotope programs. Her research includes the purification of the Bk-249 used to discover Z=117, spectroscopic analysis of Pu-238/ Np-237 and their valance states. Additionally, she serves on the Educational Outreach Committee that tries to reach out to young minority students. #MasonScience is proud to have a diverse student body and faculty. We look forward to seeing our students and faculty innovative research.

Happy #NationalDoctorsDay #MasonNation! #MasonScience would like to say thank you to all the doctors who always put their patients first and do their best to gift them health. The #COVID19 pandemic that the world is undergoing is one of the most difficult events that the world is going through. It is even more difficult for the doctors who are working tirelessly to ensure that all those that are infected are provided with proper medical care. Their contributions and hard work deserve our gratitude each and every day. Sending our warm wishes to all doctors on National Doctor’s Day.

In celebration of #WomensHistoryMonth, #MasonScience will showcase the achievements and research of innovative #WomenScientists. Today’s spotlight is #RosalindFranklin. Franklin was an English #chemist and X-ray crystallographer whose work was central to the understanding of the molecular structures of DNA and RNA. Franklin’s X-ray diffraction images of DNA were pivotal to the discovery of DNA’s helical structure. However, she did not want to announce this finding until she had sufficient evidence. Later, Crick and Watson would use Franklin’s images to inform their DNA model that was published in 1953. Despite her pivotal contribution to the discovery of DNA’s structure, Franklin was not credited for her work during her lifetime. During #WHM, let's take time to reflect on gender bias and inequality. Let's work together to create an inclusive environment where everyone will be recognized for their innovative contributions.
