One Scientist’s Journey to Accelerate Drug Discovery for COVID-19

Join Dr. Jerome Baudry, a molecular biophysics professor from The University of Alabama in Huntsville, as he pushes the accelerator on coronavirus-focused drug discovery. He’s studying compounds and elements that occur in nature and their application to drug development. Using HPE’s Sentinel supercomputer, available through Microsoft Azure — he’s researching these natural products’ efficacy against COVID-19 and sharing victories, setbacks and insights from the lab.
