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 Nature Communications how a well-described circular RNA molecule, which was thought to be carcinogenic, is not found in the cancer cells after all.

New Directions in Cryo-EM Research - 3rd CryoNET Symposium
The 3nd Annual CryoNET Symposium on October 12-13, 2020, will highlight the latest discoveries facilitated by cryo-EM research and new directions that are emerging for cryo-EM research. Students and postdocs are encouraged to apply to give talks and poster presentations. CryoNET is funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The core of the network is the Cryo-EM facilities at University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, Stockholm University and Umeå University.
