Center for Research and Innovation in Biodiversity and Drug Discovery

Deciphering biological structures in search of medicines

Glaucius Oliva speaks at FAPESP Week London about the line of work of the Center for Research and Innovation in Biodiversity and Drug Discovery and how the UK collaboration helps developing structural biology in Brazil.

Neglected diseases continue to require attention despite progress

Few novel drugs have been developed to treat neglected diseases in recent decades, Brazilian researchers warn.

Scientists synthesize molecule capable of eliminating hepatitis C virus

The compound called GA-Hecate also acts on bacteria, fungi and cancer cells and will be tested against Zika and yellow fever viruses.

New molecule considered promising antimalarial candidate

Molecule designed by the Center for Research and Innovation in Biodiversity and Drug Discovery killed malaria parasite in mice and in vitro culture.

Drugs for neglected illnesses

Researchers seek to identify target biological receptors and discover candidate molecules for new drugs
