Dear reader,

The Innovative Medicines Initiative has provisionally selected 8 projects for funding from its fast-track call for proposals on coronavirus diagnostics and treatments. Among these projects,
Corona accelerated R&D in Europe (CARE) was selected for funding which will involve the HADDOCK software.

Don't forget to register for our upcoming webinars on BioExcel Building Blocks and Summer School 2020 Edition featuring biomolecular simulations talks spanning allosteric enzyme activation, molecular machine dynamics and protein decay in the context of heritage science.
