AU researchers engineer enzyme-like nanoparticles with potential in prodrug therapy

Development of nanozymes constitutes an increasingly important mean to overcome the limitations of natural enzymes in biotechnology and biomedicine. AU researchers have just recently expanded the yet narrow range of nanozymes greatly and reveal a novel example of nanozyme‐prodrug‐therapy.

Brainnovation Day increases dialogue and cooperation with industry

On November 29, 2018, the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO), together with the Center for Integrated Materials (iMAT), once again invited the industry to Brainnovation Day. This year, the aim was to address the challenges encountered by industry in the degradation and recycling of inorganic materials.

DNA molecules will be used to mimic human sense of taste

Human sense of taste is complex and difficult to imitate. An interdisciplinary project with Jørgen Kjems as project leader is now aiming at developing extremely fast "artificial tasting machines" that use DNA molecules as billions of small "sensors" to imitate human sense of taste with unprecedented accuracy.
