Brief description Mimicking peptide structure - towards an aqueous environment. In this proposal we develop a fundamental understanding of the balance between 'weak' and 'strong' forces to define the properties of peptides and proteins. This will allow the design of new biological probes and materials with tailor-made chemical and physical properties for use in bioengineering, biotechnology, proteomics, and drug design. One such example is the design and preparation of a new chemical agent for the non-surgical treatment for cataract, the major cause of blindness world-wide.
