NEW METHOD FOR DIAGNOSING MALARIA

Danish researchers have developed a new and sensitive method that makes it possible to diagnose malaria from a single drop of blood or saliva. The method might eventually be used in low-resource areas without the need for specially trained personnel, expensive equipment, clean water or electricity. With the development of this method, the…

Award to iNANOschool PhD Student

iNANOschool PhD student Camilla Lund Nikolajsen was awarded a "Young Investigator Price" for her presentation while participating in the International Factor XIII Workshop which was held 27-29 September 2012 in Hungary. The workshop was organised by The European Thrombosis Research Organization.

Controlling surface structure at the atomic scale is paramount to developing effective catalysts. The surface structure of MoS2 is now engineered to preferentially expose edge sites by successfully synthesizing contiguous largearea thin films of a highly ordered double-gyroid MoS2 bicontinuous network with nanoscale pores.

iNANO post doc, Jakob Kibsgaard, publishes in the prestigious Nature Materials.

The paper entitled “Engineering the surface structure of MoS2 to preferentially expose active edge sites for electrocatalysis” was published this week and is based on work carried out during Jakob Kibsgaard’s stay at Stanford University, USA. The paper describes how the surface structure of MoS2 can be engineered to preferentially expose…

LIVING CABLES EXPLAIN ENIGMATIC ELECTRIC CURRENTS

The enigma of electric currents in the seabed is solved. Scientists from Aarhus University have sensationally discovered bacteria that functions as living electrical cables. Each of the centimeter-long 'cable bacteria' contains a bundle of insulated wires leading an electric current from one end to the other.

AGGREGATION OF PROTEINS IN CELLS MAY RESULT IN DISEASES

Changes in the structure of proteins can lead to various diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, type 2 diabetes and corneal dystrophy. A research team from Aarhus University has now discovered how a particular protein can damage cells. These results may lead to the development of drugs to treat corneal dystrophy in the future.
