Research "for mechanistic studies of DNA repair" awarded
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2015 is awarded to Tomas Lindahl, Paul Modrich and Aziz Sancar for having mapped, at a molecular level, how cells repair damaged DNA and safeguard the genetic information. Their work has provided fundamental knowledge of how a living cell functions and is, for ...
Research insight to nobel laureates Lindahl, Modrich and Sancar
Each day our DNA is damaged by UV radiation, free radicals and other carcinogenic substances, but even without such external attacks, a DNA molecule is inherently unstable. Thousands of spontaneous changes to a cell’s genome occur on a daily basis. Furthermore, defects can also arise when DNA is ...
Research insight to Nobel laureates Kajita and McDonald
Around the turn of the millennium, Takaaki Kajita presented the discovery that neutrinos from the atmosphere switch between two identities on their way to the Super-Kamiokande detector in Japan. Meanwhile, the research group in Canada led by Arthur B. McDonald could demonstrate that the neutrinos ...
Research in the field of particle physics honored
The Nobel Prize for Physics is awarded to Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald “for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass”.The prize 2015 recognises both reserachers for their key contributions to the experiments which demonstrated that neutrinos change ...
Research insight to Nobel laureate Tu
Malaria was traditionally treated by chloroquine or quinine, but with declining success. By the late 1960s, efforts to eradicate Malaria had failed and the disease was on the rise. At that time, Youyou Tu in China turned to traditional herbal medicine to tackle the challenge of developing novel ...
Research insight to Nobel laureates Cambell and Omura
After decades of limited progress in developing durable therapies for parasitic diseases, the discoveries by this year’s Laureates radically changed the situation. Satoshi Ōmura, a Japanese microbiologist and expert in isolating natural products, focused on a group of bacteria, Streptomyces, ...
William C. Cambell, Satoshi Omura and Youyou Tu awarded for research in parasitic diseases
The American researcher William C. Cambell and the Japanese researcher Satoshi Omura were awarded with the half of the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. They received the award for their research in the field of the parasitic diseases river blindness and lymphatic filariasis. They isolated ...
A new smart research robot accelerates research on cancer treatments. The new robot system finds optimal treatment combinations. Today complex diseases like cancer is medically almost exclusively treated by combining several different drugs. These combinations are typically composed from drugs ...
Manufacturing of a proprietary treatment for advanced Parkinson’s disease
Recipharm and LobSor Pharmaceuticals announced the formation of a manufacturing agreement for LECIGON™. As part of the agreement, Recipharm will have exclusive manufacturing rights for volumes representing first three years of commercial sales. Recipharm will also support development costs ...
Diets rich in fish oil versus diets rich in lard produce very different bacteria in the guts of mice, reports a study from Sahlgrenska Academy. The researchers transferred these microbes into other mice to see how they affected health. The results suggest that gut bacteria share some of the ...
