Undergraduate research students
Dylan is a PhB student at ANU and joined our lab for an advanced studies course in 2019. He is investigating new strategies for the generation of highly constrained bicyclic peptides to generate structurally pre-organised inhibitors of the Zika virus protease.
Tim is a visiting pharmacy student from Heidelberg University, Germany who joined our lab in 2019. He is characterising the interactions of cyclic peptide inhibitors with the proteases from Zika and related flaviviruses.
