Inverse design of curvature-sensing antiviral peptides
Viral diseases constitute one of the major challenges in modern medicine. Membrane-targeting have broad-spectrum potential and could distinguish viral membranes from the host cell plasma membrane by the difference in membrane curvature.

In this thesis, we used a combination of molecular dynamics simulations and an evolutionary algorithm to inverse design such curvature-sensing antiviral peptides, purely from physical principles.
