Proposals for thesis
Tessuti antimicrobici
Textiles functionalized with antibacterial peptides for biomedical applications.

Peptidi antitumorali
Synthesis, conformation, mechanism of action and bioactivities (antibacterial and antitumor) of the naturally-occurring peptaibiotics.

Peptidi antimicrobici del derma
Antimicrobial peptides of the human microbiome. In particular we focus on the preparation of analogs of the cathelicidin LL-37, a peptide involved in many skin diseases. We perform the synthesis and an the study of the conformational behavior of the peptides prepared

Peptidi per la cura di malattie rare

Curriculum Vitae
Cristina Peggion is Professor at the Department of Chemical Sciences, University of Padova, Italy.
After graduating at the University of Padova in 1993 (thesis title: "Trichogin A IV: a lipopeptaibol antibiotic"), in 1994 Cristina undertook research work at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, with a European Peptide Society Exchange Grant.
In 1995-1998 she dedicated to Ph.D. work at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland (thesis title: "Synthetic approaches to vaccines applying the template concept for protein design", supervisor: Prof. M. Mutter).
In 1998-2000 she worked with a post-doctoral fellow from DSM Research (Geleen, The Netherlands), for a project titled "Synthesis and conformational studies of peptides containing new Cα‑tetrasubstituted α‑amino acids produced by a chemo-enzymatic methodology".
