Lectin-drug conjugates to induce cancer cell death by drug delivery
This research focuses on the site-selective incorporation of reactive non-canonical amino acids into lectins for their directed functionalisation with small molecules. The work will combine state-of-the-art molecular biology, the expansion of the genetic code, and chemical protein modification.
