Peptide Killers of Bacteria

  • Acronym: PeptideKillers
  • Project Type: ERC CZ
  • Project Coordinator: CEITEC MU
  • Grant Provider/Investor: The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports
  • Project Code: LL2007
  • Implementation Period: 01. 07. 2020 – 30. 06. 2025
  • Budget: 2 354 753,85 EUR

Project Description: 

We will develop a method for targeting peptides to membranes with a specific lipid composition and determine the key properties of peptides for their spontaneous translocation and pore formation in membranes. The proposed peptides will be tested experimentally on lipid vesicles, bacteria and human red blood cells.
