VW Foundation supports Corona research by BIGS DrugS researchers

Prof. Christa E. Müller and Prof. Michael Gütschow (both Pharm. & Med. Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Institute) will receive up to 500,000 Euros over three years from the VW Foundation to support their corona research. The two scientists are investigating drugs against SARS-CoV-2 and other corona viruses. The drug target is the main protease of the corona viruses. A great advantage of this target is that practically no mutations are known. With the money, the team can continue the research that has so far been financed from their own funds. For example, studies on pharmacokinetics and toxicity will be carried out and important drug compounds will be optimised. We wish both scientists and their team every success with their research!
