Financial support for cooperation between Fraunhofer IME and SCAI
Our partner Fraunhofer IME is involved in Exscalate4CoV, an EU-funded project aimed at identifying candidate drugs for drug-repurposing that may be used to treat COVID-19. Fraunhofer IME had a real interest in the chemical text mining expertise at SCAI, as they observe a tsunami of publications reporting on potential drug repurposing candidates and we all need to cope with that flood.
The Fraunhofer Headquarters in Munich suggested that we make use of our experience in pharmacome building and apply our know-how for the fight against SARS-CoV-2.
Our Fraunhofer-internal activities are now supported with dedicated funding.
