As the prevalence of cancer and transmittable disease persists, the development of new and more advanced therapies remains a priority in medical research. An emerging platform for the treatment of these illnesses is the use of materials formed via peptide assembly where the bulk material itself acts as the therapeutic. Higher ordered peptide structures with… CONTINUE READING
