Pandemic Drug Development Workshop

Jul
30
10:00 am to 12:30 pm

The University of Arizona Collaborative for Global Adaptive Pandemic Solutions (CGAPS) Workshops aim to use our knowledge of COVID-19 to predict and prepare for the next pandemic.

These virtual interdisciplinary workshops are intended to engage our community around the topic of pandemic preparedness to initiate new research ideas and activities on how to predict, prevent and mitigate the occurrence of future pandemics. During these workshops, University scientists and community members will discuss themes related to COVID-19 to discuss what we have learned and what questions we would still like to answer.

The July 30 virtual workshop will discuss the topics of:

  • Bioactive compounds for use in inhibiting SARS-CoV-2 viral replication, SARS, MERS and membrane interactions
  • Repurposing cardiovascular drugs that spare ACE2 function for treating COVID-19
  • Identifying small molecules that inhibit the interaction of CoV-2 viral proteases with human target proteins that disrupt the immune system
  • and anti-virals targeting SARS-CoV-2
