Understanding the peptide function in biological systems through Isolation of peptides of interest from natural sources, their characterization, mechanistic investigation and design of structural analogs with improved properties. Recent efforts focus on host defense peptides having potential for mono- and/or combination therapy. By exploiting rational design and peptidomimetic strategies for correlating in-vitro target site interactions with in-vivo effects on pathogens and host cells, we aim to peruse pharmaceutically competent peptide analogs for developing a drug delivery system susceptible to challenge multidrug-resistance.
