Thitithanyanont received the L’Oréal Thailand COVID-19 Solidarity Prize in the field of life sciences for her research projects addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, including diagnostic methods, treatments and vaccines. In an early study of 217 recovered COVID-19 patients, Thitithanyanont and her team at the department of microbiology at Mahidol University were able to identify viral clearance as well as the pattern of antibody responses with SARS-CoV-2. This understanding of natural host defenses and antibody duration provides a foundation for further research into controlling the spread of the virus.
