William C. Wimley, professor of biochemistry in the School of Medicine, is making soup, but not the kind you’d probably like to sip. In his lab, in a cell soup, he’s synthesizing peptides in order to create ones with therapeutic potential, particularly as smart-delivery systems to deliver drugs that have shown promise against microbes known as “superbugs.” Wimley’s work is supported by the National Institutes of Health and was recognized in the NIH Director’s Blog.
