THE CARE CONSORTIUM ADDRESSES THREE MAIN GOALS
The development of therapeutics to provide an emergency response towards the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Drug positioning / repurposing
Screening and profiling compound libraries to progress molecules to advanced stages of clinical testing within 18 months.
LONG TERM STRATEGY
The development of therapeutics to address the current and/or future coronavirus outbreaks.
Small molecule drug discovery
Target-based and in silico screening and profiling of candidate compounds against SARS-CoV-2 for clinical testing in 36 months.
Virus-neutralising antibody discovery
Fully human phage and yeast display, immunisation of humanised models, patient B cells and in silico design for clinical testing within 36 months.
Increasing the understanding of the physiopathology of COVID-19.
Immune marker discovery
Discovery of immune markers contributing to host-immune responses to COVID-19 infection and their correlations with clinical and virological outcomes.
Ambition to accelerate effective therapies to COVID-19 patients in Europe and around the world, and generate a truly transformative treatment regimen.
