NOVEL COMPOUNDS TO ENHANCE ANTI-COVID-19 ACTIVITY AND SAFETY

Wei Wang, Steffan Nawrocki, Jennifer Carew

Because clinical studies of anti-malarial drugs have provided uncertain evidence regarding their utility in treating COVID-19, a College of Pharmacy team is testing novel inhibitors in treating existing infections. Drs. Wei Wang, Steffan Nawrocki and Jennifer Carew will use the anti-malarial drugs as the foundation for designing similar, yet distinct compounds. By doing so, these experts in drug discovery and viral biology aim to identify new compounds which may prove to be safer and more efficacious.
