A message from

CEO Zack Abbott, PhD

The scientists at ZBiotics are microbiologists, which means our training, education, and careers have been focused on the study of microorganisms, including viruses like the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, we've been receiving anxious questions from friends and family. There's a lot of information out there, and sifting through it to find answers to what's concerning you isn't easy.

That's why we decided to make our knowledge – and our rolodex – available to you.

We're inviting you to submit your questions concerning COVID-19 to us at

If we know the answer, we'll get back to you. If we don't, we know people who will. The scientific community is strong: our friends and colleagues include epidemiologists, immunologists, and others with PhD-level training in a number of relevant fields.

If we or our network can be of any help, please let us know. Also, to find out more about how ZBiotics is handling COVID-19, please check out this update.



UPDATE: We have received and answered a number of great questions. Please find them and our answers here.
