Marko presented his results at Affinity2023 in Lisbon

Marko Babić attended AFFINITY2023 – The 25th meeting of the International Society for Molecular Recognition conference, where he presented a flash talk entitled “Modeling the aggregation of self-assembling histidine rich peptides in the presence of zinc(II) ions” and had a nice opportunity to network with colleagues and friends. It was a nice opportunity to visit Portugal.



SupraChem Days 2023

Patrizia participated at the SupraChemDays 2023 held in Cagliari with the presentation “Elucidating the role of amino acid disposition, cyclization and chirality on self-assembly propensity and catalytic activity of histidine-rich peptides” where she presented her latest results on short catalytic peptides.     


Invited Lecturer Presentation Award at the MRS Spring Meeting in San Francisco

Proud to share that Daniela, our team leader, won the Invited Lecturer Presentation Award at the MRS Spring Meeting in San Francisco. It has been a great experience and opportunity for sharing our results and interacting with leaders in the field of peptide materials! For someone starting their path as PI this is a great recognition. Thanks to the whole #deshpet team for working hard to make it possible. #MRSspring #SB06 #peptides #ML #team

#RSCPoster Twitter conference 2023

Our master student Ena together with Matea, Valentina and Alberta that attended out elective course Nanochemistry, participated at the #RSCPoster conference on twitter where they presented their work on the topic on Lactose intolerance and the possibility to design short peptides able to catalyse lactose hydrolysis. The projects were designed and supervised by PhD students Patrizia and Marko, well done!
