A 14-year-old Indian-American girl has won a US $25,000 young scientist challenge for a discovery that could provide a potential treatment for Covid-19. Anika Chebrolu, an eighth grader from Frisco in Texas, won the 3M Young Scientist Challenge, regarded as the US’ premier middle school science competition, for her work using in-silico methodology for drug discovery to find a molecule that can selectively bind to the Spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 virus in an attempt to find a cure for the virus, as per 3M Challenge.
