Very good piece on the superb LinFa Wang ⁦⁩ - great scientist, mentor, collaborator, generous, unselfish & fun. ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦
Meet Linfa Wang. Growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution, he wanted to become an electrical engineer. Today he is the “bat man”, one of the world’s leading experts on bat viruses and is helping search for the source of #SARSCoV2.
The hunt for the origin of #SARSCoV2—"an effort that will likely require screening 1000s of animals & humans for signs of a prior infection" by Linfa Wang, who launched the field of bat immunology by w/ @19_research
The biologist who helped to establish the connection between SARS and bats is now bent on finding out whether the novel coronavirus crossed over from animals to humans. #COVID19
Meet the bat man: Biologist Linfa Wang has been tracking viruses from bats to humans for more than 2 decades. Now, he's working to home in on the origin of #SARSCoV2.
Honoured to be a colleague of this eminent scientist and a very humble person. This biologist helped trace SARS to bats. Now, he's working to uncover the origins of COVID-19
Wang, who heads the Emerging Infectious Diseases Program at Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore, immediately got to work developing a new assay that can detect antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in blood samples—an indication of prior…

"So far, the evidence is that the virus originated in bats, animals Wang has long argued are uniquely suited to harboring viruses that pose a danger to humans."
