Project name: Identification of Fasciola hepaticaactive chemical series by repurposing the Open Access Pathogen Box
How will this funding will help advance your research?
As a Peruvian scientist, I feel honoured to receive this grant. With it, our group will contribute to identifying compounds against the helminth parasite Fasciola hepatica. The project will serve as a starting point for further validation of lead compounds and potential targets to contribute to the development of a novel generation of anti-fascioliasis drugs.
