My research focuses on the solid phase synthesis of peptides containing bulky dehydroamino acids. They have recently discovered that peptides containing bulky dehydroamino acids are very less prone to proteolysis. They are using this innovative and patented technology to stabilize anti-cancer peptides for better therapeutic outcomes.
