Our research program aspires to mimic biomolecular self-assembly using a set of rationally designed peptide-based building blocks. These peptides combine elements that direct assembly with elements responsible for natural-binding interactions into a hybrid molecule. The design and application of such ‘bottom-up’ assemblies requires precision synthesis, predictive folding algorithms, and accurate characterization of self-assembly.
