DESCRIPTION OF THE OFFER

This project is focused on the development of novel therapeutic proteins against infectious diseases. In particular the project is focused on the evaluation of Hepatitis C virus and the novel pandemic SARS-Cov2 coronavirus. Different modified protein will be desing starting with a particular enzyme which has been already demonstrated to have interesting antiviral activity against HepatitisC. The project will be focused on the production, purification and chemical alteration of this enzyme by using different tailor-made peptides and polymers in order to affect to the enzymatic activity which is the responsible of the antiviral capacity which finally will be tested on the COVID-19 assay.
