When peptide chemistry meets nanomedicine and nanotechnolgy
Using a multidisciplinary approach, which includes bioinformatics, peptide design, peptide chemistry, molecular and cell biology and biophysics, to illustrate the principles that govern the protein/membrane interactions and understanding the molecular forces underlying peptide-peptide interactions within the lipid environment of the cell membrane.
The group has proposed the exploitation of the internalization properties of membranotropic peptide gH625 for vector-mediated internalization strategies
This topic is a very active and a open research field which is emerging as a key approach for solving the problem of antimicrobial resistance
Great interest has been devoted to the use of supramolecular objects possessing antibacterial activity which may be obtained by the self and co-assembly of AMPs. This strategy may help in overcoming the drawbacks of traditional AMPs
The field of antiviral compound development is pivotal to combat viral diseases. In particular, the inhibition of HSV attachment and/or entry is a main area of research of the group
