Enhanced microbes as alternative green energy sources

The demand for energy is growing and so is the demand for alternative energy solutions, which includes living sources of electricity. AU researchers have in collaboration with an international team created microbial energy cells and shows a method for improving the efficiency of bioelectrical systems.

AU steps up the virus research with millions from the Carlsberg Foundation

Professor Jørgen Kjems from MBG and iNANO will collaborate with researchers from Health, the University of Copenhagen and the Danish Serum Institute, and with DKK 25 millions from the Carlsberg Foundation they will develop methods for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infections. The goal is at the same time to equip the world to…

Aarhus University and the pharmaceutical industry work together on open innovation - a shortcut to new medicines

Aarhus University and a number of international pharmaceutical manufacturers are joining forces in a groundbreaking, open research collaboration, ODIN (Open Discovery Innovation Network), which the Novo Nordisk Foundation supports with DKK 54.5 million. Data and results from the collaboration are made open and free to the outside world. The…

Controlling the conversion of CO2 with new catalysts

Converting CO2 into more useful products offers an interesting strategy to mitigate climate issues while producing value added chemicals. Researchers from the Carbon Dioxide Activation Center (CADIAC) have discovered how the ligand scaffold around a manganese catalyst can be modified to control the selectivity of the products generated via…

New Carbon Isotope Labeling Technique

Carbon isotope labeling of new drug candidates is an important process for allowing preclinical and clinical investigations on a specific compound’s distribution, metabolism, and toxicity. AU researchers have found a new method for this with broad applicability.

Results published by AU researchers reveal that surfactant-mediated unfolding and refolding of proteins are complex processes with several structures present, and rearrangements occur on time scales from sub-milliseconds to minutes.

Caught soap-handed: Understanding how soap molecules help proteins get in and out of shape

Controlling protein structure is crucial in the production of detergents and cosmetics. Up to now we have not had a clear understanding of how soap molecules and proteins work together to change protein structure. Now AU researchers have succeeded in creating a detailed picture of both unfolding and refolding of a protein by soap molecules on the…

From minus to plus – new magnet technology enhances green power

There are magnets in virtually all modern electrical equipment. However, the current versions are often based on metals with heavy impacts on the environment. Associate Professor Mogens Christensen is researching a new and cleaner magnet technology; research which also opens up for new opportunities to exploit and store electricity.
