Webinars » Boosting Your Therapeutic Discoveries with Peptide Libraries
There are many bottlenecks in therapeutic discoveries and one of which is the identification of the right target that is specific to illicit a positive therapeutic outcome for the disease. The difficulties come when many of the targets, in particular proteins, have a three-dimensional structure and could harbour multiple antigenic epitopes or that the epitopes are hidden within. As such, peptides come in handy, as they are synthetically accessible and proteolytically stable. Peptide Libraries become a high throughput way for screening of targets. With their large variety of peptides, generated using a systematic approach, peptide libraries are essential in popular research areas such as immunotherapy, vaccine development, drug discovery and proteomics. Choosing the right peptide libraries for the desired applications become crucial to obtain target information for therapeutic discoveries development.
Field Application Scientist, GenScript
How Wing Leung, Ph.D. is the Field Application Scientist, supporting the protein expression and antibody production services at GenScript. Dr. Leung graduated from the National University of Singapore in 2011, majoring in Pharmacology and Neuroscience and worked as a research fellow in Duke-NUS Medical School thereafter. She has more than 10 years of research experience in molecular biology techniques and extensive knowledge in protein structure modelling, protein expression and its purification. Using these platforms, she deciphered novel cleavage site of proteases and their functional implications in stroke upon cleavage of the ionotropic glutamate receptor.
