3 Catalan Covid-19 vaccines

A few days ago, the 19 research projects in the BioRegion awarded €4 million from the Catalan Ministry of Health to research the pandemic, with technical support from Biocat, were announced. Of these projects, 3 are researching potential vaccines for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Let’s look at the preventive strategies they propose.

5 existing drugs that could be used for Covid-19

Five research projects in the BioRegion of Catalonia are investigating how to take advantage of therapies already in use for other diseases to treat Covid-19. They have received funding from the Catalan Ministry of Health to study this new path towards a possible cure to the pandemic. Let’s look at what they’re working on.

Will Covid-19 affect investment in the biomedical sector?

The BioRegion of Catalonia has a solid local investment fabric and the number of international investors has grown tenfold over the past 5 years. How will the pandemic affect their activity? Companies are seeing some operations postponed, but investors, for now, are optimistic: activity won’t stop, quite the opposite, this will boost interest to attract more investment.

5 Covid-19 therapies from Catalan research

Biocat will provide support for the 19 research projects in the BioRegion awarded €4 million from the Catalan Ministry of Health to research the pandemic. 5 of these projects are researching new therapies using very diverse strategies. Let’s look at what they’re working on.

19 projects to fight Covid-19

The Catalan Ministry of Health has earmarked €4 million to fund 19 research projects at IRISCAT centers, through a joint call with AQuAS and Biocat. We’ll tell you what the chosen researchers are working on.

More than 120 clinical trials underway to find Covid-19 vaccine

Information and data on Covid-19 are always changing (countries affected, spread, number of people hospitalized, in critical condition and the mortality rate, etc.) and, fortunately, so is the number of scientific advances and medical solutions to tackle this new coronavirus. Let’s have a look at them.

Calls open to fund research on Covid-19

Governments and other public and private bodies have opened emergency calls to fund projects working to help tackle the pandemic. Here is a summary of the most noteworthy.

 

17 Catalan coronavirus research initiatives

Researchers around the world are working against the clock to find vaccines, therapies and other tools to help manage the international healthcare crisis caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. At Biocat, we’ve identified some of the initiatives underway in the BioRegion of Catalonia.
