An international research team has been able to describe the overall structure of the antibody type IgE, which is the key molecule in allergic diseases. This is a scientific breakthrough which provides important insights into basic mechanisms of allergic reactions and may pave the way for more effective allergy medicine. The new research results have now been published in the scientific journal Allergy.
Aarhus University is the first Danish university to join the Tiny Earth global crowdsourcing initiative which, with the help of teaching staff and thousands of students all over the world, is trying to combat antibiotic resistance.
A new research project at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University aims to recycle plastic waste into a standardised filament product for the 3D printing industry.
Associate Professor Menglin Chen has received a major grant from the Carlsberg Foundation to develop a completely new method of regenerating brain and heart cells. The method uses water-based nanofibers coated with organic photovoltaic nanomaterials to create light controlled neural stimulating scaffolds inside the body.
Researchers have found an unusual, light-dependent enzyme in microalgae. A new project at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, will use the enzyme in a system to produce drop-in fuels from waste oils and fats.
