Learn how advanced technologies are contributing to the fight against COVID-19!

Scientists at the University of California are using machine learning to identify new potential drugs that could help treat COVID-19. They have developed a drug discovery pipeline – a type of computational strategy linked to AI – to run their trials.

Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) are the key to understanding the regulation of cellular networks & pathways. Several virologists and medicinal chemists are using the MAC-tag technology to probe them in an effort to locate novel druggable host proteins as therapeutic targets to fight COVID-19.

UC San Francisco scientists have devised completely synthetic, production-ready molecules dubbed ‘AeroNabs’ through protein engineering to minimise the spread of the COVID-19 virus. These are inspired by nanobodies (antibody-like naturally occurring immune proteins).
