EU-OPENSCREEN is a not-for-profit European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) for Chemical Biology and early Drug Discovery with more than 20 affiliated high-throughput screening and chemistry facilities. It operates an open-access database and a central compound management facility which stores, quality-controls and manages the jointly-used EU-OPENSCREEN compound collection.
In response to the current pandemic, we are actively involved in a range of activities to study the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and identify candidate molecules for therapeutics. We are exploiting our competences in drug discovery with a focus on drug repurposing activities and the development of high throughput screening assays for the rapid identification of small molecule modulators of viral proteins or host pathways essential for viral replication.
To support Sars-CoV-2 research, EU-OPENSCREEN ERIC prioritises user access to its core services and technologies. Users from academia and industry with COVID-19 related research projects can submit their project idea and collaborate with us. EU-OPENSCREEN offers:
We are part of the German network“Zukunftsorte” Berlin , an association of leading science locations in Berlin, which has just published a new brochure featuring the activities of the network to fight the Corona pandemic. Do not miss to read it and learn what EU-OPENSCREEN and the other innovation hubs in Berlin are offering in the field of corona research. You can download the brochure (in German only) here .
