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.

Cell-penetrating peptides

The group has proposed the exploitation of the internalization properties of membranotropic peptide gH625 for vector-mediated internalization strategies

Self-assembling peptides

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

Anti-bacterial peptides

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

Anti-viral peptides

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
