Professor Oscar Kuipers recently received a € 1 million grant from the EU to study synthetic peptides. A European consortium that Kuipers is involved in wants to use new peptides in developing antibiotics. Kuipers wants to adapt the peptides so that they will be broken down less quickly and are able to have new antimicrobial properties.
