Development of a test to identify inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2 proteases

Cov2-PIs project

Aim: SARS-CoV-2 proteases are essential to the life cycle of the virus and are highly conserved in the beta-coronavirus family. This is how the Cov2-Pls-project researchers will develop a high-throughput screening system to identify inhibitors that can effectively block the action of SARS-CoV-2 proteases, and thus stop the proliferation of the virus. The molecules identified could help develop, ultimately, effective drugs to control the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and limit its impact on public health and the global economy.
