Integrating Computational Design with Screening in Mammalian Cells for Novel Peptide Therapeutics

I will present our technology platform that integrates computational library design with modern in-cell selection strategies to uncover novel peptide therapeutics. I will cover a number of different library designs and selection methodologies, including selections for phenotype or using genetic reporter systems and cell sorting, as well as methods to obtain highly stable mirror image peptides.
