Fight against retroviruses

The SILVER project funded by the European Union aims to develop therapies against emerging retroviruses (Zika, Ebola, SARS, MERS). After thorough research on the structure of the viruses, antiviral substances are optimized and tested in cell and mouse models established for the purpose. Several broad and specific spectrum inhibitors have been identified.
