AMPSEC, an AntiMicrobial Peptides SECretion platform to identify alternatives to antibiotics

Grant no.: NFRFE-2021-00913                             Period: 2022/04 – 2024/03


This project aims to tackle the challenge of antibiotic resistance by an interdisciplinary approach including the development of a new technology – the AMP secretion platform by means of synthetic biology, quantitative modeling of natural AMPs, and to design novel, potent, and specific AMPs.
