AU researchers contribute to understanding corona proteins on nanoparticles


A Danish research team shows in Nature Communications how they have developed a new approach for faster, though more in-depth studies of corona proteins, which affect the functional role of nanoparticles. The image schematizes a nanoparticle covered by corona proteins. (Image: <em>Nature Com.</em> 11, Article no. 4535 (2020))

AU researchers contribute to understanding corona proteins on nanoparticles

The properties of nanoparticles are widely acknowledged and they are an important tool in pharmaceutical applications, among others. However, there is a need for deeper understanding of the protein layers accumulating on their surface, as these protein layers affect the functional role of the nanoparticles. AU researchers have developed a method…

A Danish research team describes in an article in <em>Nature Communications</em> how a well-described circular RNA molecule, which was thought to be carcinogenic, is not found in the cancer cells after all.

Inauguration of the Danish National Cryo-EM Facility, EMBION

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy (cryo-EM) has become a truly important technique in molecular cell biology as well as medicine and biotechnology. Together with the University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University has established state-of-the-art cryo-EM facilities in Aarhus and Copenhagen, which will be inaugurated on October 12, 2020. The research…

International initiative seeks to improve healthcare through cell-based medicine

The research initiative LifeTime represents more than 50 European universities, including Aarhus University. A new Perspective article in Nature, co-authored by Jørgen Kjems from iNANO and MBG, outlines LifeTime's vision of how to revolutionize healthcare through personalised, cell-based interceptive medicine.
