My laboratory applies covalent constraints to produce peptides with unique chemical and biological functions.
I have been involved in problems of peptide conformation and molecular recognition since graduate school. I have broad experience applying innovative synthetic, biophysical, and genetic approaches to peptide science. The peptide community is a big tent, but has always been a source of support and inspiration for me. I welcome the opportunity to give back.
Advancements in the field of biopharmaceuticals and protein engineering necessitate the development of new methods for on-demand production of chemically modified proteins and peptides. Standard solid-phase...
