BASF Supports Search for Active Ingredients to Combat Coronavirus
As part of its “Helping Hands” initiative, BASF is not just donating disinfectant and protective face masks. The company is also providing support worldwide to academic research groups in their search for a suitable active ingredient to treat patients infected with the coronavirus. BASF has more than 150 years of experience in researching substances. The company has also developed its own computer programs to design molecules and has its own supercomputer called Quriosity. “Leveraging these enormous research capabilities is another way we can contribute to combating the coronavirus pandemic,” said Dr. Peter Eckes, President Bioscience Research at BASF.
