A molecule has been identified that appears to play an important role in the development of Parkinson's disease, a debilitating disease that affects millions of people around the world.
Zika prefers certain “hot spots” in the brains of chicken embryos, offering insight into how brain development is affected by the virus. If the virus also prefers specific sites in human brains, researchers could look to them for targeted therapies and drug testing.
A silk hybrid material attacks bacteria when illuminated by a green light, thanks to a far-red fluorescent protein researchers transferred to its genetic makeup.
Purdue contributes to experiments on light-matter interactions for potential quantum technology applications
Purdue researchers collaborated in a Rice University-led study detecting a quantum shift that results from the strong coupling of light and an ultra-high mobility two-dimensional electron gas rotating in opposite directions.
A Purdue University-patented technology shows promise in using microscopic bubbles filled with oxygen to help with various medical treatments, including improving cancer therapeutics and helping wounds heal faster.
