Areej Alhhazmi: Understanding Heme Binding AntiMicrobial Peptides

Join Dr. Areej Alhhazmi on Wednesday December 2, 2020 to learn more about her research at MIT's Biology Department in Prof Graham Walker's Lab. One of Dr. Alhhamzi’s research interests lies in the area of tackling antibiotic resistance challenge. In particular, identifying and characterizing new antibacterial leads among natural resources, such as host defense peptides. In her research at MIT, Dr. Alhhazmi focuses on characterizing an iron sequestering/heme-binding plant peptide with antimicrobial activity.
