Scientists at Rutgers are playing a role in the search for a cure for the Zika virus, and they’re seeking the public’s help.
Alex Perryman, a research teaching specialist at Rutgers’ New Jersey Medical School, and Joel Freundlich, associate professor of pharmacology and physiology and medicine, are part of a supercomputing project that screens current drugs and millions of drug-like compounds against models of Zika protein structures.
The results will be shared with the research community and the general public. The compounds that show the most promise will then be tested in laboratory settings.
