Research Interests

Dr. Kaur’s research has evolved into two main programs: (i) Antimicrobial Peptides (AMPs) and (ii) Cancer Targeting Peptides.  Her research program in AMPs involves design, synthesis, and evaluation of AMPs or novel analogues for development of food preservatives, therapeutics and diagnostics.  Specially, she concentrates on bacteriocins that are potent AMPs against Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella, E. coli, and Campylobacter, and are produced by lactic acid bacteria. Her research program in “Cancer targeting peptides for drug delivery and diagnostics” involves engineering improved cancer targeting peptides for increased therapeutic efficacy of current chemotherapeutic drugs, and development of cancer imaging agents and diagnostics. She has published 44 peer reviewed articles, 3 book chapters, been listed as an inventor in 1 approved patent, and has presented 18 invited talks.
