New centre to find the origins of life in space

With DKK 67.4 million (EUR 8.9 mill.) from the Danish National Research Foundation, professor Liv Hornekær at Aarhus University will establish Center for Interstellar Catalysis, in order to find out how and when the building blocks of life formed in the universe.

Professor Troels Skrydstrup as partner in Grand Solution project on increasing the recycling of plastics

New Danish collaboration between companies and researchers aims to develop a completely new method of recycling a specific type of plastic, which would otherwise end up on incineration plants for energy recovery or at the landfill. The technology is expected to help reduce oil consumption and CO2 emissions.

Empty spaces, how do they make a protein unstable?

Partial unfolding of proteins can be a big problem in industry, as it may affect the stability of products. So how does an empty space or cavity in its hydrophobic core destabilize a protein? And would such a cavity in fact be empty? These are some of the questions researchers from Aarhus University answer in a new study.
