Visualizing nanoscale structures in real time
Open-source software enables researchers to see materials in 3D while they’re still on the electron microscope.
Behind the Paper: Enabling Multi-Objective Antibody Optimization
This PhD student blog post explores the use of machine learning for simultaneously optimizing antibody affinity and specificity, which could help accelerate drug development.
Nanobiotics: model predicts how nanoparticles interact with proteins
Nano-engineered drugs that stop harmful bacteria and viruses could be on the horizon.
Nicholas Kotov elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Nicholas Kotov, Irving Langmuir Distinguished University Professor of Chemical Sciences and Engineering, has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Only 13,500 members have been elected since 1780.
Nicholas Kotov honored by MRS with the David Turnbull Lectureship
U-M ChE’s Nicholas Kotov has been recognized by the Materials Research Society (MRS) with the David Turnbull Lectureship for foundational discoveries in interface-based engineering of self-organizing materials.
Greg Thurber receives World ADC George R. Pettit Individual Input to the Field Award
U-M ChE associate professor, Greg Thurber, has been recognized with the George R. Pettit Individual Input to the Field Award. He was presented with the award at the 2021 World Antibody Drug Conjugate (World ADC) Conference.
Toward protein nanomachines: just add charge
Added electrical charges can harness a protein’s shape and chemical properties to build interesting structures.
Sustainable biofuel: Design principles for bioengineered microbe catalysts
The US has been stuck on corn kernels for producing ethanol, rather than woody “cellulosic” material. Efficient microbes for converting cellulose to biofuel could change the game.
Findings in mice show pill for breast cancer diagnosis may outperform mammograms
A new kind of imaging could distinguish aggressive tumors from benign, preventing unnecessary breast cancer treatments.
Twisted semiconductors for future moving holograms
Holographic displays need twisted light. Twisted semiconductors assembled with the help of amino acids may enable them.
Keeping drugs on the job
Computer simulations developed at the University of Michigan reveal how well drug additives stop the active ingredients from crystallizing in the digestive tract.
Most complex nanoparticle crystal ever made by design
Extraordinary nanoparticle crystals are possible by harnessing particle shape in addition to using DNA as smart glue.
