CRI bioinformatics resources highlighted by researchers working to treat zoonotic diseases

By | News

A team of University of Chicago scientists is working to find ways to repurpose generic and over-the-counter drugs to treat zoonotic diseases, potentially making treatment for these infections more affordable and accessible worldwide. The CRI Bioinformatics Core’s resources and expertise allowed them to run fast, efficient analyses of the drugs’ effectiveness. Read about their work at the Institute for Translational Medicine.
