Deslouches Berthony, Antimicrobial peptides development as a primary research objective

Antimicrobial peptides development, a primary objective of my research program

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…
