Alesia Tietze Group

Dr. Alesia A. Tietze, Assosiate Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in medicinal chemistry with focus on total synthesis of bioactive peptides, i.e. cysteine-rich peptides, which are derived from biologically active natural sources (i.e. cone snails, spiders, snakes), their targets (membrane proteins) and their structural analogues as well as engineering of bioispired materiales based on functional peptides/proteins and artificial carriers (i.e. nanopores, polymers).


What we are interested in...

  • We perform synthesis of bioactive peptides, derived from the venom of gastropods and study their mode of action with their targets, i.e. membrane proteins or/and transmembrane receptors, in order to develop more potent structures.
  • We develop new strategies for the chemical synthesis of membrane proteins (ion channels), since their synthesis is challenging due to their highly hydrophobic properties. We develop methods to improve their solubility and therefore facilitate the availability of this class of proteins/peptides.
  • We develop bioinspired materials and sensoric hybrid systems on basis of functional peptides and their conjugation onto polymeric/nanoporous support.
