SAS joins Rapidly Emerging Antiviral Drug Development Initiative to advance drug discovery with artificial intelligence and machine learning.
READDI is among eight projects selected to advance from 136 proposals initially submitted.
We have a bounty of vaccines and more on the way, but drugs that treat the disease are vital too if we want to keep people alive and bring the pandemic under control.
With few good targets and limited financial incentives, the field of antiviral drug discovery has lagged. The COVID-19 pandemic might be awakening the world to the problem.
Boris Johnson wants to do for Covid drugs what he did for vaccines. It’s not that simple.
Despite dire warnings, a stockpile of ready compounds to fight viral pandemics was sorely lacking. Can drugmakers finally do the right thing?
“Why don’t we start thinking about how we can prevent the next pandemic, even while at the same time working to solve the current problem?”
Join Tar Heels Together for an important conversation with campus experts including Eshelman Institute for Innovation Director John Bamforth and UNC School of Medicine Associate Professor Nat Moorman. They will discuss how READDI is bringing together the world’s best minds in science and business to proactively develop and deliver novel antiviral drugs before the next virus creates another global catastrophe.
