Edinburgh Protein Production Facility (EPPF)

Facility to provide essential proteins for coronavirus research

Edinburgh Protein Production Facility (EPPF) have joined a national consortium to provide medically important proteins that will aid coronavirus research.

The COVID-19 Protein Production Consortium (CPPC) will provide UK scientists with quick access to proteins that support research into COVID-19 therapeutics, vaccines and diagnostics.

Protein reagents are crucial to understanding the fundamental biology of the virus, but can be challenging and time consuming to produce, especially under restricted working conditions.
