Researchers have detailed a mechanism in the distinctive crown of SARS-CoV-2 that could help scientists quickly find new treatments for the virus and quickly test whether existing treatments are likely to work with mutated versions as they are developed. The team, led by the University of Warwick, in the United Kingdom, as part of the EUTOPIA community of European universities, has simulated movements in almost 300 protein structures of the spike protein of the Covid-19 virus using computational modeling techniques, in an effort to help identify promising drug targets against the virus.
Prof Seán Hand, Deputy Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Europe) at the University of Warwick, talks about being a full member of the EUTOPIA network. He says alliances are vital to stop universities developing “an isolationist perspective” on research and education.
