Amount awarded: $151,000

This research investigation designs and computationally studies the properties of nontoxic sulfonic acid coated nanoparticles with a strong local binding to the viruses attachment ligands, which experiments show can lead to local irreversible deformations that permanently inhibit viral infectivity.
