Cotten Speaks at Eastern Analytical Symposium and Exposition

Posted December 16, 2009
Tags Chemistry Faculty
Associate Professor of Chemistry Myriam Cotten presented an invited research talk at the 2009 Eastern Analytical Symposium and Exposition in November in Somerset, NJ. Her talk titled “Solid-State NMR Structural and Topological Studies of Antimicrobial Piscidin in Aligned Lipid Bilayers: Implications for Membrane Activity” was part of a session on the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy of biological systems in the liquid and solid state.

Cotten explained how her research group has used modern solid-state and solution NMR techniques to obtain molecular-level information on the mode of action of highly potent antimicrobial peptides. The long term goal of this research is to identify common principles that will facilitate the design of pharmaceuticals with enhanced antibacterial activity.
