HALOS webinar: Inside the Coronavirus

Event Date: 2020-11-09  

Webinar with Dr Andrea Thorn, Universität Hamburg

The Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 consists of a multitude of small and macro-molecules, which enable it to infect and hijack host cells. Experiments at large facilities like DESY or MAX IV shed light on these atomic structures and helps us to understand the viral life cycle. In addition, through structure-based drug design, these experimentally determined macromolecular structures can enable us to find new therapies. In this talk, Andrea Thorn gives an insight into these viral structures using models and animations. She will tell us about their implications for the pandemic and her team’s work with over 500 known macromolecular structures from SARS-CoV and SARS-in order CoV-2 to build a bridge between the pioneers who determined these structures at large facilities and the drug developers at forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic.
