‘The Chemical Biology of Peptides’ topical collection


We’re excited to share with you our new topical collection on “The Chemical Biology of Peptides” for RSC Chemical Biology, highlighting the excellent work published so far in the journal in this exciting area of research.

This collection features work where peptides are used to image immune checkpoints, where they are harnessed to develop novel GPCR ligands, and where they are used to inhibit protein-protein interactions, along with many more fascinating applications and studies.

Explore some of the papers in the collection below, and see the full collection here:  RSC Chemical Biology – The Chemical Biology of Peptides collection
