The proliferation of antibiotic resistant bacteria represents a significant risk to human health. Natural selection has evolved mechanisms by which higher organisms utilize biomolecules such as peptides to neutralize potential invading pathogens. These molecules provide models for understanding how to combat infection under physiological conditions. I am interested in employing protein/peptide design and engineering principles in order to investigate these antimicrobial peptides and develop novel therapeutic strategies and technologies.
