A new photonic effect in semiconducting helical particles with nanoscale dimensions has been discovered by an international team of scientists from the University of Bath, UK and the University of Michigan, US. Here, Professors Nicholas Kotov and Ventsislav Valev discuss their study and the observed effect which has the potential…

The novel screening technique can identify molecules that can disable dangerous proteins before they cause diseases by blocking them from interacting with a cell’s DNA.
Researchers have shown that twisted nanoscale semiconductors can be utilised to accelerate the discovery of drugs through high-throughput screening.
Researchers observed new structures of alpha-synuclein aggregates in their study exploring how the presence of cell membrane phospholipids impacts protein aggregation.
A study has shown that long non-coding RNA called DIRC3 can block melanoma growth and could be used to identify new targets for skin cancer therapies.
A study that identified 12 novel compounds that may prove valuable against new drug targets for leishmaniasis and Chagas disease was not without complication. Here, we discuss the findings but also the challenges the researchers reported in their hit-to-lead study.
A study using high-throughput screening has revealed some promising compounds that could be used in future cancer treatments.
Cancer researchers have measured systematically how efficient molecules are at suppressing the activity of a protein associated with prostate and other cancers...
