We use SPOT synthesis and µSPOT microarray technology to screen for peptide ligands against numerous targets
- Design peptides and proteins with high relevance for neurological disease, epigenetic targets, cancer, and other life threatening conditions.
- Develop and optimize probes for investigation of disease-relevant mechanisms in vitro and in vivo.
- Develop and apply cutting-edge technologies to glean atomic-scale insight into ligand-protein interactions.
