This is the largest initiative for the development of new crown drugs in Europe, aiming to accelerate the development of drugs against the current new coronavirus and the potential threat of coronavirus in the future. < / P > < p > the alliance has received funding and resource support of about 77 million euros from the European Union and more than a dozen European pharmaceutical companies and related partners. The five-year alliance project brings together 37 member units from China, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium and other countries. < / P > < p > the alliance proposed a strategy for the development of new coronavirus drugs. Key R & D areas include: R & D of “old drugs for new use” through screening and analysis of compound libraries, shortening the time for candidates to enter clinical trials; computer virtual screening and analysis of candidate compounds targeting new coronavirus and potential coronavirus targets to develop small molecule drugs; human phage and yeast display library and humanized animal immune model And computer simulation design and other ways to find virus neutralizing antibody. < / P > < p > the global health drug research and development center, a non-profit new drug research and development institution jointly established by Beijing municipal government, Tsinghua University and the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is the only Asian member of the alliance. Since the outbreak of Xinguan epidemic, the center has carried out a series of work on “new use of old drugs”, virtual drug screening based on artificial intelligence and drug discovery of neutralizing antibodies and vaccines. Dr. Ding Sheng, Dean of the school of pharmacy of Tsinghua University and director of the global health drug research and development center, said that the global health drug research and development center is honored to join the alliance and concentrate and integrate the resources from all partners to accelerate drug research and development and combat the threat of new coronavirus and potential coronavirus in the future.
