The Pires' Research group synthesized analogs of cell walls and established that they are tolerated by bacteria, which provided an efficient way to graft handles on bacterial cell surfaces. With these concepts defined, they showed that this mode of grafting antigens onto bacterial cell surfaces was superior to their original concept. Their work was published in 2016 in the journal ACS Infectious Diseases without a request...
