      If you voted for me it would really help with research to understand what it is that makes bat immune systems so special; why bats can carry viruses and don’t always get sick, why bats don’t have the same inflammation response to infection as humans do. Understanding all of this may then help come up with ways in helping humans fight diseases too.
