Nya läkemedel som blockerar SARS-CoV-2 infektion
Purpose and goal: The project aim is to apply a new drug discovery platform using directed evolution for finding potent peptides targeting the SARS-CoV2 infection.
Expected results and effects: The project will enable the discovery of new potent peptides targeting SARS-CoV2 infection and will establish a new drug discovery pipeline to find anti-viral peptides.
Approach and implementation: The project is structured according to specific work packages including development of respective synthetic biology tools, conducting of high throughput screening, analysis of the created data sets and hit evaluation.
