Winner of Winter 2020 Scientific Challenge: Vigneshwaran Namasivayam with Novel CD39 Inhibitors

We are happy and proud to announce the winner of the Winter 2020 Scientific Challenge: Vigneshwaran Namasivayam from the University of Bonn!

In his project Vigneshwaran aimed to discover novel ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase-1 (also known as NTPDase1) inhibitors for the treatment of of cancer and infections. A very difficult task as most known binders do not display drug-like properties (e.g. negatively charged groups). Nevertheless he managed to discover three novel scaffolds with desired physicochemical properties for further follow-up using BioSolveIT tools.

You can read more about his project here.

We wish all the best for future projects and further success stories with BioSolveIT applications.
