Research at the interface of chemistry, biology, and materials science

The Kramer Lab applies synthetic polypeptides to address unmet medical needs, and to probe the structure and function of unique natural proteins.

  • Design and synthesis of new biomaterials
  • Models of epithelial tissues in health and disease
  • Mechanisms of viral and bacterial infection
  • Probing cancer biology toward new therapeutics
  • Cryopreservation of medical tissues and organs
