Podcast with iNANO researchers on DanMax and high-energy radiation

Listen to Henrik Birkedal and Mads Ry Jørgensen tell about DanMax, a materials science beamline at MAX IV accelerator in Lund. Learn both how high-energy X-rays are made, how X-rays must be treated before you can use it, and not least what Danish researchers hope to be able to use the expensive device for. (In Danish)

Traditional Chinese medicine incorporated in nanoparticles as cure for Parkinson's disease

New findings by Professor Daniel Otzen and his research team show that baicalein, a traditional Chinese medicine, incorporated in nanoliposomes may protect against the destructive attacks by alpha-synuclein, which is the cause of Parkinson's disease. Read about the findings here on sciencenews.dk.

Extracts from rose and olives can prevent parkinson’s

Parkinson’s disease is caused by an imbalance in the brain resulting from alpha-synuclein, a small unstable protein that misfolds and accumulates in clusters and clumps that destroy the brain cells of people with the disease. Researchers from Aarhus University have now discovered that extracts from Damask roses and Koroneiki olives can prevent…

Zebrafish embryos help prove what happens to nanoparticles in the blood

What happens to the nanoparticles when they are injected into the bloodstream, for example, to destroy solid tumours? Hossein Mohammad-Beigi, Duncan Sutherland, and Thomas Boesen have collaborated with colleagues from Department of Molecular Biology & Genetics on tackling such a challenging question using zebrafish embryos as a new study model in…

A Danish research team shows in Nature Communications how they have developed a new approach for faster, though more in-depth studies of corona proteins, which affect the functional role of nanoparticles.

AU researchers contribute to understanding corona proteins on nanoparticles

The properties of nanoparticles are widely acknowledged and they are an important tool in pharmaceutical applications, among others. However, there is a need for deeper understanding of the protein layers accumulating on their surface, as these protein layers affect the functional role of the nanoparticles. AU researchers have developed a method…
