Our Research Goals

Molecular recognition in proteins enable vital cellular functions such as cell signaling, through protein- protein interactions. Taking inspiration from nature, we have developed novel comprehensive macrocyclic libraries composed of amino acids and amino acid like small molecules. We aim to harness the power of molecular recognition by peptidic and peptidomimetic macrocycles to address a diverse set of problems in human health and energy.
