Design and delivery of antifungal beta peptides from polyelectrolyte multilayer film coated medical devices
My research is on antifungal, synthetic beta peptides and their delivery from polyelectrolyte multilayer coated devices such as catheters. I am currently focusing on the structure-function relationship of beta peptides, their release and loading behavior, and their effect on fungal and mammalian cells.
