Aarhus University selected as the first Danish ‘lighthouse’ research environment in Lund

Denmark has invested billions of DKK in state-of-the-art research facilities around the European Spallation Source (ESS) near Lund in Sweden. Bo Brummerstedt will now be the first research director of a Danish lighthouse environment that will work towards realising the ambitions behind the huge Danish investment. The appointment is accompanied by…

AU scientists develop safer method for handling high-risk reagents

Pyrophoric chemicals like tert-Butyllithium are used on a daily basis in many laboratories. These reagents are very sensitive towards air and moisture, and serious accidents have occured when handling the reagents inappropriately. CADIAC scientist has developed an important improvement in the protocol, which makes it safer for also undergraduates…

Catalysts for Reduction of Sulphur Emissions under Pressure in Nature Communications

Strict regulations for Sulphur emissions call for improved catalytic processes of reducing Sulphur content in crude oil. A publication in Nature Communications by Jeppe Vang Lauritsen and Bjørk Hammer, Aarhus University, shine light on how MoS2-based catalysts are able to remove Sulphur.

Coincidentally(?), the rocket on the students' t-shirts tied in rather nicely with the Dean's speech, which linked the Open Science platform with the research behind the Apollo 11 mission. In this photo, the students are listening to lead materials specialist Allan Hjarbæk Holm from Grundfos, who is talking about the Grundfos group's long-term goals and expectations in connection with Open Science.

iNANO researchers look back at successfully completed Biofilms 8 conference hosted by Aarhus University

310 researchers from 33 different countries made their way to Biofilms 8 at Aarhus University this week to discuss all aspects of bacterial biofilms for 3 days at the university Aula

A 3D scaffolded RNA origami octahedron with intrinsic siRNAs. The enzyme Dicer binds the structure (1) at specific recognition sites and cleaves the structure, which releases the siRNAs (2). The octahedron was demonstrated to efficiently silence a target reporter gene when transfected into H1299 cells. (Figure by Høiberg et al.)

New method for building 3D RNA nanostructure ready to knock down target genes

The research groups of assoc. prof. Ebbe S. Andersen and prof. Jørgen Kjems have recently published a paper in Biotechnology Journal describing the design, construction and characterization of an RNA origami with built-in small interfering RNAs (siRNAs).

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…
