I, Dr. Eyad Qunaibi, am a part of a research team in Jordan working on Corona research. We are facing hardship in testing some compounds on an enzymatic target in SARS-CoV2. The enzyme is not available in Jordan. We can’t clone it now, and laboratories in Western countries are not interested in collaboration with researchers outside since they are under huge pressure looking for Covid 19 cure and vaccine.
Therefore, we are now targeting researchers in countries like China, Korea, Japan, or Russia. So we can send the test compounds to the researcher and he tests its activity against 3CLpro (a SARS-CoV-2 enzyme).
What we are looking for is NOT the contacts of the researcher, since this can be easily obtained rather we need someone to connect us directly with the researcher and make sure he is interested in collaboration.
If you can do so, please put your contacts in the comments.
Also, if you can connect us directly with a researcher in counties like USA or Germany then we are also interested.
وبارك الله فيكم.
