My name is Ho Leung Ng. I am an Associate Professor of Biochemistry at Kansas State University in the US. I lead a non-profit organization called OSC-19 to develop drugs for fighting COVID-19 infection.
We have identified a potent drug lead called GC-376, an experimental veterinary antiviral drug, that is promising for COVID-19. The drugs needs further chemistry research to make it safer, more stable, more potent, and orally available for humans. We will not pursue patents. We will release all data publicly.
We are seeking funds to accelerate our research. Funds will go to purchase research supplies, pay for student assistants, and pay for research services from commercial vendors.
Thank you for joining us in our fight against COVID-19.
