Zoltán Gáspári (PPKE) : Chapters form the structure biology of the coronavirus

Although the 2019-nCoV/SARS-CoV2/COVID-19 virus came into the spotlight of molecular biology research all of a sudden, many details of its life cycle are already known from the study of related viruses. Novel results, obtained continuously at a surprising pace, reveal the specific features of the new virus. In my lecture I provide an overview of the cellular entry, translation and replication of the virus using available protein structural data.

György M Keserű (TTK): Repositioned drugs in COVID-19 infection

Since the COVID-19 outbreak witnessed in the US and Europe, national efforts of social distancing and vaccination should be complemented by effective treatment options. The present time constraints, however, do not allow developing new therapies from scratch. Therefore, most of the treatment protocols involve repositioned drugs originally developed for different indications. This talk gives an overview on the most important treatment options and summarizes the available outcomes.

Péter Ábrányi-Balogh (TTK): ChemLearning

In the ChemLearning program ELTE, BME and TTK lecturers joined in order to help and support the education of organic chemistry at the universities. Our goal is to give a tool of nowadays technology in the lecture rooms and outside the university buildings to the hand of the students and educators. For this reason we are compiling a databank of organic chemistry problems and excercizes that can be used in Canvas and Moodle e-learning systems.
