Using computer modelling, a team has shown that a molecular chaperone called GRP78 could be targeted by drugs in strategies to treat COVID-19.
Researchers have successfully created an unbiased, high-throughput microtitration assay for the quantification of Ebola virus in cell lines.
Researchers have designed a new nanoparticle-based vaccine against Ebola that has shown promise in mice and rabbits.
Professor Martin Michaelis and Dr Mark Wass explain why new SARS-CoV-2 variants are emerging around the world and how vaccines will have to adapt in response.
Researchers have developed a new screening technique called biological activity-based modelling to identify drug candidates.
Using supercomputer stimulations researchers reveal that the structural stability of the Ebola nucleocapsid is depended on the presence of RNA and interactions with charged ions.
Exploring how the Ebola virus develops remdesivir resistance has highlighted a mutation that could allow SARS-CoV-2 to do the same.
The global network of centers will investigate where pathogens emerge and how they adapt to cause disease in humans, in the hopes of increasing our preparedness for future disease outbreaks.
Novel protection pathway makes cells resistant to Ebola and coronavirus infection, report scientists
Researchers reveal that activating the MHC class II transactivator (CIITA) and CD74 genes protected cells against infection by Ebola and SARS-CoV-2.
Researchers discovered the monoclonal antibodies of a convalescent Marburg infection patient bound to the glycoprotein and combatted infection in two novel ways.
An innovative chimeric vaccine containing an Ebola gene that helps the virus evade the immune system has been used to selectively target and kill glioblastoma in mice.
