A 3D rendering of a tardigrade — a microscopic, eight-legged animal found in water and/or damp moss. Appalachian State University alumnus Harrison Esterly ’19 is a co-author of recently published research that shows a tardigrade-specific protein is safe for injection in mice and may therefore be suitable to stabilize vaccines at room temperature, which would eliminate the need for costly refrigeration during storage and transport.
