COVID-19: Natural Products to the Rescue?

The genome sequence of SARS-CoV2 identified a number of potentially ‘druggable’ targets. These include several enzymes essential to viral replication and propagation. Furthermore, host targets provide additional strategies to block viral processes. We have deployed our collection of microbial natural product extracts and compounds in a number of screens of viral and host proteins. Working with a team of amazing collaborators we have identified several candidate molecules, some of which may have potential as new anti-coronavirus agents.
