Bacteria in Medical Implants on Purpose? Opening the Way to Living Implants

Apr. 28, 2015 — Supramolecular chemistry is the science that is concerned with molecular self-assembly: chemical building blocks which, when you combine them, naturally form larger ordered structures. Researchers ... read more

New 3-D Method Improves Study of Proteins

Apr. 27, 2015 — A new computational method called AGGRESCAN3D has been developed, allowing researchers to study in 3-D the structure of folded globular proteins, and substantially improve the prediction of any ... read more

Apr. 23, 2015 — Since its first use in the 1980s -- a breakthrough dramatized in recent crime-solving dramas -- DNA profiling has been a vital tool for forensic investigators.  Now researchers have solved one of ... read more

Nanotech-Enabled Moisturizer Speeds Healing of Diabetic Skin Wounds

Apr. 23, 2015 — A new high-tech but simple ointment applied to the skin may one day help diabetic patients heal stubborn and painful ulcers on their feet, Northwestern University researchers report. They are the ... read more

Apr. 23, 2015 — Taking child's play with building blocks to a whole new level-the nanometer scale-scientists have constructed 3D "superlattice" multicomponent nanoparticle arrays where the arrangement ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Using an ultra bright X-ray source, scientists have decoded the molecular and three-dimensional structure of two promising drug candidates from the new group of Spiegelmers for the first time. The ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Enzymes, the micro machines in our cells, can evolve to perform new tasks when confronted with novel situations. But what if you want an enzyme to do an entirely different job -- one that it would ... read more

Making Chemistry Greener

Apr. 21, 2015 — Chemists are working to develop “greener” processes for discovering, developing and manufacturing medicines and other molecules with therapeutic potential, as well as compounds used in biomedical ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — Proteins and lipids have been assumed to move through cell membranes as 'nano rafts'. This 'raft hypothesis' has now been disproved by scientists. "We should not think of the ... read more
