Abstract

Casey Schmidt studied peptides from marine organisms in a range of different aspects focusing on their potential use as drug leads. She investigated a previously described peptide from the venom of a cone snail and the relationship between its three-dimensional structure and its function. She also discovered and characterized five new peptides from the stony coral Heliofungia actiniformis.
