Research Summary

Our research focuses on the synthesis and evaluation of antimicrobial peptides to address the antibiotic resistance crisis. We are interested in solid-phase synthesis of complex cyclic peptides and their analogues, and in studying their structure and mechanism of action using a suite of NMR and biophysical methods. To enable these synthetic efforts, we are also interested in developing novel synthetic routes to the unusual amino acids found in naturally-occurring antimicrobial peptides.
