Eight teams of researchers are working tirelessly on COVID-19 at the Armand-Frappier Health Biotechnology Center.

Our researchers, with the strength of their respective fields of expertise, are uniting their knowledge and know-how to fight COVID-19.

Objectives of the research carried out at the Armand-Frappier Santé Biotehnologie Research Centre:

  • Creation of a SARS-CoV-2 protein S vaccine;
  • Discovery of a medication to fight COVID-19;
  • Development of antiviral agents against SARS-CoV-2;
  • Rapid detection of the virus (diagnostic test);
  • Targeting the Coronavirus RNA with drugs ;
  • Validating the efficiency of a semi-synthetic vaccine against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus to help alleviate the current worldwide COVID-19 pandemic;
  • An unprecedented investigation of secondary metabolites in the invertebrates that make up the diet of bats in Quebec: a source of new molecules to fight viruses and associated inflammatory responses.

Help us support these pioneers of public health research in Quebec!
