Nanopeptides and Nanosaccharides for Advanced and Sustainable Materials

Project description

Assembling nature's building blocks in new ways for novel bioproducts

Proteins and polysaccharides (complex carbohydrates) are nature's polymers, large molecules made of repeating small units (monomers). In the case of proteins, the units are peptides. In the case of polysaccharides, the units are saccharides or simpler sugars. The EU-funded PEPSA-MATE project has created a multidisciplinary team including early stage researchers to derive novel products from nature's building blocks using rational design. The team is creating a library of nanopeptides and nanosaccharides and an innovative computer platform to 'discover' advanced biopolymers for biomedical and commercial applications. Besides being eco-friendly alternatives to conventional fossil fuel-derived plastics, they will also be biofunctional and biocompatible for use as drug-delivery platforms.
