Modifying the Brain Barrier to enhance treatments against dementia

The Project “Advanced Lipid Nanostructures to Overcome Blood-Brain-Barrier” seeks to design nanometric particles and treat efficiently the disease of the central nervous system (CNS), as the Alzheimers. The research is led by Olga López, from the Instituto de Química Avanzada de Cataluña (IQAC-CSIC), and Mercedes Balcells, from MIT.

Molecular ecosystems that interact and evolve

Scientists have developed a new technique to study the interaction between molecular systems and how these systems adapt to environmental changes. The potential uses are in several fields, such as molecular sensors or the study of the origin of life.

Carrying molecules into the skin

Scientists at the CSIC are designing advanced lipid systems for skin treatments. In the last experiment, they have obtained chemical maps of skin samples, which show how the lipid molecules enter the inner skin.

ADN para depositar y organizar moléculas a escalas inferiores a los 10 nanómetros

There is no translation available.

Científicos han desarrollado este nuevo método que serviría para aplicaciones microelectrónicas y biomédicas, incorporando moléculas de forma ordenada “a la carta”. El trabajo, liderado por el CSIC, se ha publicado en la revista Advanced Materials. Los segmentos de ADN se acoplan entre ellos como piezas de ‘lego’ y pueden usarse como  “adhesivo” para acoplar otras moléculas funcionales o nanomateriales

CarbaZymes project: imitating the chemistry of nature

Imitating the chemistry of nature in order to obtain clean and sustainable chemical processes is the goal of project CarbaZymes, funded in the European EU’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. The consortium held its mid-term review meeting in Brussels, at the Directorate General for Research & Innovation.
