PostEra Call: Help us Fight Coronavirus - Contribute your expertise to design inhibitors of the SARS-CoV-2 main protease

18 May 2020

PostEra Call:

"We are an international group of scientists from academia and industry trying to do our small part to help combat COVID-19. This effort began when Chinese scientists worked rapidly to determine the structure of the novel SARS-CoV-2 main protease (Mpro), which triggered a massive crystal-based fragment screen at the XChem facility at UK’s Diamond Light Source. With the same urgency, we are now trying to progress these data towards what is desperately needed: effective, easy-to-make anti-COVID drugs.

We welcome contributions of many forms including scientific expertise, experimental capabilities, and indeed donations to make this possible.

If you are an experimentalist with hands to lend, especially a Virologist with live assays, please email us. If you wish to make a financial contribution to help make and test more compounds, please see our donation page."
