Research is in progress in the following areas:

Exploring the scope of peptide sequence and structural space with antimicrobial and immune modulatory action

Developing peptide-based inhibitors of essential bacterial functions

Engineering multi-functional antibodies to control microbe-microbe and microbe-host interactions

Building synthetic cell-based systems for high throughput peptide/protein screening and delivery

Synthetic microbe-based manipulation of human health and performance

Characterizing peptides as reversible and degradable materials
