TargetHerpes has started!

Friday 12 January, kickoff meeting of the TargetHerpes EU project.

TargetHerpes is an EU funded STREP project between BioDec and other eight participants.

The main objectives of the projects are the following:

  • Identify herpesviral and cellular molecular targets for the rational design of intervention strategies
  • Define lead compounds that can be further developed into anti-herpetic therapeutics.

The main focus will be on:

  • mimetics or antagonist peptides to target molecules,
  • silencing of the viral and cellular target molecules by means of siRNAs or shRNAs.

 

BioDec will be the bioinformatics provider of the project.

At last the project has started! We have a brand new logo as you can see ...
