RNA is having a moment. We’re living in a pandemic caused by an RNA virus (SARS-CoV-2), and some of the vaccines that will help bring us out of it are also made of RNA. Basic science research, like the kind done at the U-M Center for RNA Biomedicine, paved the way for these exciting new vaccines. What do you know about this world-changing single helix and the research that made it possible for us to harness its power?

Take this short quiz to test your knowledge of RNA, SARS-CoV-2, and the COVID-19 vaccines. You’ll get your own results immediately, but next month, we’ll publish the full results in our newsletter, so you can see how you stack up against others.
