Dimiter Stanchev Dimitrov Named ‘Science Superhero’
Dimitrov was recognized on the list as one of the first to discover neutralizing antibodies for the original SARS coronavirus in 2003. In the ensuing years, his team discovered potent antibodies against many other infectious diseases. His lab recently isolated the smallest biological molecule to date that completely and specifically neutralizes the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is the cause of COVID-19.
