Scientists at DESY have developed a new method that enables automated and fast screening of promising drug candidates. This novel technique, called mix-and-diffuse serial synchrotron crystallography, can image the interaction ...
Antidepressants are making their way into our lakes and rivers—and they're making freshwater fish less fazed by predators.
Scientists have made a key discovery that could speed up the production of cells in the lab for studying diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease.
Chemistry researchers have now discovered how certain small biomolecules attach to one another. The researchers' study also overturns the standard picture – particles with the same electrical charge appear to be drawn together ...
Researchers from the Department of Engineering are collaborating with industry and academia to develop a device to improve the testing of kidney disease drugs.
Basic research can lead to cures, drugs and other scientific breakthroughs through collaboration, confirms a new study in Heliyon (http://www.heliyon.com/). Understanding the extent of the collaboration that leads to breakthroughs ...
Manganese dioxide could make the preparation of micromotors increasingly cost-effective, opening up new avenues for their use, according to a new study from the University of Eastern Finland.
Polymer nanoagents that can 'light up' tiny areas of diseased tissues that conventional methods fail to detect, have been created by a research team led by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore)
Cell walls—the jacket-like structures that surround all known bacteria—may turn out to be bacteria's undoing , holding the key to developing new drugs that target it for destruction.
Our old friend Saccharomyces cerevisiae – the yeast that's helped people bake bread and brew beer for millennia – has just had its sex life upgraded.
