The Rogers Laboratory

at the University of Copenhagen

Reprogramming nature's peptide-synthesis powerhouse, the ribosome, to synthesize highly non-proteinogenic peptides. Screening trillion+ libraries of cyclic peptides to isolate super-binders: molecules ready for use as research tools or for development into future drugs. Discovering molecules for unsolved problems in human health. Molecules, new in form, function, or both.

CBP Annual retreat. Superb workshop on creativity, by Itai Yanai and Martin Lercher of the 'Night science' podcast. Warm-up exercise was an engineering task of the sort where children often outpreform adults. Mine and Fabian's tower was pretty good, draw your own conclusions.
