LL37, example of the multifunctionality of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs)

Antimicrobial peptides development to overcome antibiotic resistance

Antimicrobial peptides development fits well in my primary research goal, which is to develop novel peptide therapeutics against hard-to-treat bacterial and viral infections. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) rapidly (within seconds to minutes) kill bacterial pathogens primarily by a membrane-perturbing (detergent-like) mechanism. They are an…
