Enzyme therapeutics

Enzyme therapeutics are a potential means of addressing the emerging health care crisis resulting from drug resistant microbial pathogens. Efforts are focused on the redesign of antimicrobial proteins for enhanced bactericidal activity towards various clinically relevant targets. One facet of this work relates to complications associated with the genetic disease cystic fibrosis, and is being investigated in conjunction with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Research Development Program at The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.
