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.
