Current Developments in Experimental and Computational engineering of Peptide Therapeutics
Peptides as therapeutics are an emerging class of therapeutics modalities, due to their high binding affinities and specificities. Here we will discuss their characteristics as therapeutic class and give an overview on recent and future developments. Furthermore, we highlight strategies for identification and optimization of peptide therapeutics. We will also cover emerging technologies for structure-based computational design of peptides using Rosetta. Specifically, we will train students in the theoretical background of computational techniques for Peptide design and provide hands-on training with respect to engineering peptides consisting of genetically encoded but also non-canonical amino acids.
Prof. Christina Lamers & Prof. Annette Beck-Sickinger (Leipzig University)
Prof. Allison Walker, Prof. Rocco Moretti and Prof. Benjamin P. Brown (Vanderbilt University)
Registration via email to Juliane Adler
