Review in Nature Catalysis from CADIAC on methods for CO2-to-CO conversion

A series of negative consequences for our planet’s climate system are caused by a remarkably high concentration of atmospheric CO2 and determined effort are made in reusing CO2. In a review in Nature Catalysis, researchers from Carbon Dioxide Activation Center (CADIAC) at Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Centre, Aarhus University, cover the methods…

Starting signal for the future multifunctional medicine

The potential for the research now being addressed by the Center for Multifunctional Biomolecular Drug Design (CEMBID) at Aarhus University is enormous. The goal is to create a new generation of drugs that can be used to diagnose and treat cancer and atherosclerosis - which together represent two thirds among the causes of death globally.
