Title: “Revolutionizing the discovery of therapeutical peptides and biologics”
In the past decade, we have shown a number of examples to de novo discovery of unique macrocyclic peptides by means of the integration of the genetic code reprogramming and mRNA-encoding display method, referred to as RaPID system. In this seminar,I discuss some of these show cases of therapeutical peptides and the most recent invention for the generation of multi-specific biologics.
