Nanoscale Embroidery. Antibiotic resistance is a worldwide crisis. Scientists are currently researching an alternative: antimicrobial peptides. The key to finding the right peptide is having it bind, insert and penetrate effectively to the target cell. My proposal is to achieve this through embroidery techniques, using specially designed nano-threads.
