Finding a drug for COVID-19: We don't have time to start from scratch
The Chanda Lab at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute is racing to screen 13,000 compounds—already tested in humans—to find a drug that can slow or stop SARS-CoV-2. If successful, this approach is likely the fastest path to a treatment for COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). The effort is part of an international collaboration to respond to this public health crisis.
