The project is informal. It is a collaboration with investiagators at INDICASAT (scientific institute) and STRI (Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute) in Panama through which we continue to study the antimicrobial peptides produced in amphibian skin. These peptides have antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties.
