Personal profile


Dr Julien Tailhades received his PhD degree in 2010 from the University of Montpellier (France) with Prof. Jean Martinez and Dr Muriel Amblard; and joined Monash University (Australia) to work with Assoc. Prof. Max Cryle in 2016. His main work focuses on peptides and their applications in medicinal chemistry; enzymatic and chemical methodologies are at the center of his research in order to access bioactive peptides. Nowadays, his focus is reviving "old" peptide antibiotics to provide novel alternatives against resistant bacteria.

Research interests

1) Synthesis and evaluation of lipopeptide antibiotics (eg. ramoplanin)

2) Chemical and enzymatic syntheses of glycopeptides antibiotic (eg. Vancomycin).

3) Development of solid-phase peptide methodologies (eg. Greener chemistry, on-resin cyclization).
