Systematic Computational Drug Repositioning to Treat COVID-19
Project ID : 47-2020-10880

Details of the Technology Offer

Our Innovative Approach

The genetic revolution which has taken place in recent years brings new opportunities to the field of drug discovery & repositioning. Using advanced comparative genomic, and data integration, our lab has been developing a state-of-the-art AI algorithm which maps drug and food supplements that are useful in treating diseases and improving health conditions. To create this algorithm, we have been integrating and analyzing massive amounts of genomic data from 1,600 genomes, 14 thousand compounds, 20,000 human genes, and a comprehensive database of phenotypic data.

Proposal

We now propose harnessing our unique approach to discover drugs that fight against coronavirus. Appling our unique AI algorithm have yielded a preliminary list of possible drugs with the promise of affecting the deadly virus.
