Scientific Resources

MAVDA members now have access to CDD Vault!

The Collaborative Drug Discovery (CDD) Vault is a complete informatics platform hosted through an intuitive interface. It helps project teams manage, analyze, and present data.

CDD Vault

Target Product Profiles

The Antiviral Program for Pandemics (APP) team, along with experts from across NIH and BARDA, has drafted Target Product Profiles (TPPs) for potential direct-acting antiviral therapeutics candidates targeting several key viruses of pandemic potential. Realizing that you all are also working on TPPs for these same pathogens, we wanted to share these sample TPPs in case they provide useful tools to supplement your efforts.

TPPs will be available soon on the NIAID APP website.

Open Antivirals

The Open Science Forum is a virtual, public venue to openly share and disseminate antiviral drug discovery research information in a pre-competitive fashion. Guest speakers present target priorities, advertise available resources and reagents, disclose chemical matter (including hits, leads, and chemical tool compounds) and associated antiviral data, share findings regarding in vivo efficacy models, discuss downstream development and translation models, and share ideas. Presentations are recorded and shared publicly online for the benefit of the global antiviral drug discovery community. Learn more.
