Research Highlight

EJP
A new paper in the journal Journal of the American Chemical Society authored by Chemistry Associate Professor James Peteresson and his research group details new techniques that could lead to longer-lasting drugs. The effort is a collaboration with colleagues in the Perelman School of Medicine at Penn. Their project explores the use of peptides to help to control a number of biological processes. The paper was highlighted recently in Nature.
