We are searching and scouring the published literature, the pre-print servers (MedRxiv, BioRxiv, ChemRxiv) for information about SARS-Cov-2 and COVID19 and what could be treatments for COVID-19. We are reading articles and identifying any drug targets, any re-purposed drugs, and other therapies i.e. cell therapies. We have focused teams, for example, we have a team focusing on cardiovascular disease, another on pregnancy and maternal care, another on immunology and another on ageing.
