Drug Discovery & Development

A key emphasis of research in the Division of Infectious Agents and Cancer is the translation of fundamental research to future clinical applications employing the tools of protein, glycoprotein and peptide engineering, including:

  • peptide synthesis using both natural and non-natural amino acids
  • directed evolution using phage display, mirror-image phage display and yeast display
  • vaccine subunit design using recombinant protein technologies
  • structure-based rational design
