Project Details

Project Description

This project will develop new tools and approaches to enhance drug discovery for Chagas disease, a serious, chronic illness endemic in countries of poverty and poorly treated by available drugs. Through the strategic application of these new tools, we will identify new drug candidates suitable for further development.
