BUSM Researchers Identify Chemical Compounds that Halt Virus Replication

Claire Marie Filone, a postdoctoral researcher in the Connor Lab, led the research that identified a new chemical class of compounds that have the potential to block genetically diverse viruses from replicating. The findings, published in Chemistry & Biology, could allow for the development of broad-spectrum antiviral medications to treat a number of viruses, including the highly pathogenic Ebola and Marburg viruses. This story is highlighted in BUMC News.
