Project title:
Making use of siderophore transport systems to deliver peptide nucleic
acids to bacterial cells
Competition type; OPUS 19
Financing institution: National Science Centre
Project description:
The project objective is to use bacterial iron transport systems to
deliver peptide nucleic acid (PNA) oligomers to bacterial cells,
including the design of siderophore-PNA conjugates, their synthesis,
and characterization of transport through the bacterial outer
membrane. The lab web page is at
Enquiries about the project:
Key responsibilities include:
– performing various experimental assays on bacterial cells and cellfree systems,
– testing antibacterial properties of peptides and PNA conjugates,
– designing and performing bacterial uptake assays of siderophore
analogs and their conjugates with PNA,

– preparing reports and presentations, presenting results at internal
and (inter)national meetings, training junior scientists.
