Fast Flow Peptides

Team: Bradley Pentelute and Klavs Jensen with Andrea Adamo, Alex Mijalis, Mark Simon, and Dale Thomas

Peptides are an important and growing area of therapeutics. The development of peptide-based pharmaceuticals requires the synthesis of custom peptide sequences made on demand. With current batch systems these can take weeks to synthesize. This project is developing a flow system that greatly accelerates the rate of production and reduces overall synthesis time to minutes. (Renewal from Fall 2013 grant round)

The technology from this project was spun out into a startup company, Amide Technologies
