Gene Therapy Mediated by Hybrid Peptides
Hybrid Peptide Drug Nanocarriers
Designed peptide nanocarriers can deliver drugs to the cell and improve drug bioavailability. Our hybrid peptide (COL-CPP) has been tested on 3T3 mice fibroblasts, three cancer cell lines, and a fresh water worm, Pristina leidyi.
Electrical Stimulation for Wound Healing
Modification of collagen gels with metallic nanoparticles changes the structure of the gel and its properties.
Transport in hydrogels
Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching (FRAP) and Electrochemical Time-of-Flight (ETOF) are used to study diffusion within the gels.
Long-Term Sensor Implantaion
Control over the cell motility can become a major factor in improving the implantable sensor time of operation within the body.
Formation of fibers and sheets from self-assembled peptides results in novel materials with potential applications in biotechnology.
Peptide-Based Porous Materials
Controllable crystallization of a peptide can lead to fully organic porous materials with long range order.
