Abstract

The CVR has established "CRUSH" (COVID-19 Drug-Screening and Resistance Hub) for the benefit of the UK academic and industrial community. CRUSH is a facility fully dedicated to screen anti-SARS-CoV2 drugs/ monoclonal antibodies and characterise the potential drug-resistant mutations induced by possible lead compounds. CRUSH will also monitor the presence of SARS-CoV-2 globally circulating strains with potential drug-resistant mutations and curate an open access database with this information.
