A longstanding tradition continues this week when the latest chapter of Villanova's Olympic story begins in Tokyo, Japan. Three former Wildcats will represent their countries in the Olympics – triathlete Summer Rappaport (USA) along with track & field athletes Siofra Cleirigh Buttner (Ireland) and Patrick Tiernan (Australia). In addition, Villanova men's basketball head coach Jay Wright is an assistant coach for Team USA.
In his Biological & Environmental Systems Engineering Laboratory, associate professor Dr. Zuyi “Jacky” Huang and his team developed a computational platform that has accelerated the discovery of chemical compound inhibitors against 3CLPro, a protease that is essential for the replication of COVID-19. The result has been awarded a provisional patent and published in Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences.
Aaron Bauer, PhD, Professor, Gerald M. Lemole Endowed Chair in Integrative Biology and founding co-director of Villanova's Center for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Stewardship, is renowned for his work in naming and studying geckos and other small reptiles. While his ability to visit these reptiles in far-reaching destinations has been limited during the COVID pandemic, Dr. Bauer’s work has not slowed down.
