Learning more about nature's chemical solutions

Assoc. Prof. Henrik Birkedal (Department of Chemistry and iNANO) is featured by DR (Danish Broadcasting Corporation) in relation to his research in bio-inspired materials. The interview follows recent studies by researchers at Texas A&M University on how a shrimp claw inspires new method of underwater plasma generation. (Article in Danish only)

How good are protein disorder prediction programmes actually?

Until now it was difficult to answer this question, as a good benchmark for testing these bioinformatics programmes was lacking. AU scientists, Dr. Jakob T. Nielsen and Dr. Frans A.A. Mulder present an analysis in Scientific Reports using a comprehensive compilation of experimental data from NMR spectroscopy.

Widely common olive species excel as natural inhibitor of Parkinson’s disease

The compositions of antioxidants in a certain species of olive fruits have been found to be superior in protection against Parkinson's disease. As Parkinson's disease is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases, but still without a cure, this is an important finding on the way to combat this crippling condition.

Exploring the impact of nanoparticle design on Parkinson's disease therapies

AU researchers, Daniel Otzen, Hossein Mohammad-Beigi, and Cagla Sahin and collaborators publish in ACS Nano on how the design of nanoparticles have a crucial role in the inhibition of alpha-synuclein fibrillation and the progress of Parkinson’s Disease, accordingly.

Funding for research in improving plastics recycling

Over one third of the plastics produced are used only once and then discarded. The majority of these plastics end up in landfills and our oceans. Professor Troels Skrydstrup has been awarded a Semper Ardens grant for developing new means to deconstruct some of the most commonly used plastics, which can then be exploited again as new useful plastic.
