Tiny droplets in our cells can accelerate the accumulation of protein deposits in diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, but they can also hinder this accumulation. Chemists are set to publish their new findings on 2 December.
Maike Hansen, researcher of biophysical chemistry at Radboud University, will receive a Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC). Hansen will use this grant to study how cells make decisions about their functional roles.
Alexey Kimel, Professor in Ultrafast Spectroscopy of Correlated Materials of Radboud University has been awarded an Advanced Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) to develop new technologic concepts for ultrafast, low dissipative data storage.
Researchers of Radboud University and Standford University have discovered a molecule that might prevent obesity by suppressing food intake. The molecule is produced in our bodies from lactate and is naturally released during physical exercise.
Researchers at Radboud University receive a Gravitation grant from the Ministry of ECS. Over the next ten years, they will receive tens of millions of euros for interdisciplinary research into brain disorders and quantum technology.
In a new publication, microbiologists from Radboud University have demonstrated that it is possible to make methane-consuming bacteria generate power in the lab. The study will be published in Frontiers in Microbiology on April 12.
Brigitte Adriaensen and Alexander Khajetoorians of Radboud University and Erno Hermans of Radboudumc will each receive a Vici-research grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
