  • Water that never freezes

    Can water reach minus 263 degrees Celsius without turning into ice? Yes it can, say researchers from ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, if it is confined in nanometre-scale lipid channels. Making ice cubes is a simple process: you take a plastic ice-cube tray like you’d find in most households more

  • Course set to overcome mismatch between lab-designed nanomaterials and nature's complexity

    Cells and the machinery they encase are soft matter -- shape-shifting multicomponent systems with an overwhelming richness of forms. But, these squishy packages are hard targets for potential therapeutic and diagnostic applications that exploit nanomaterials, from quantum dots that light up specific more

  • Novel technique enables air-stable water droplet networks

    A simple new technique to form interlocking beads of water in ambient conditions could prove valuable for applications in biological sensing, membrane research and harvesting water from fog. Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a method to create air more

  • Lipidomics – a new kid on the “OMICS” block

    Progress in research is – to a large extent – driven by technological and analytical advance-ments. This is particularly true for the field of lipid research in the biomedical field, which was hampered for decades by the limited availability of analytical tools to address the enormous complexity of lipids in the human body. Now we are entering the era of “lipidomics”, which aims at addressing the entire complement of lipids in a biological sample, with wide ranging applica-tions in basic research, biotechnoloy and biomedicine (for the state-of-the-art see also: Opinion articles on Lipidomics, [1]). more

  • Diet, gut microbiota and host lipid metabolism

    Nature provides an enormous diversity of lipid molecules that originate from various pathways. Fatty acids are key modules for various lipids, including cell membrane lipids such as phospholipids or triacylglycerols, which are the major components of lipid droplets. Excess lipids or defects in lipid metabolism are associated with diseases such as metabolic syndrome. more

  • Dr. Lyudmilla Borisjuk

    Lyudmilla Borisjuk, studied microbiology and biochemistry at the T. Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (Kiev, Ukraine), received her PhD in mycology and her qualification as a professor (“habilitation”) in plant physiology at the Leibniz-University Hannover. Her interest in plant biotechnology ( more

  • Prof. Dr. Sepp D. Kohlwein

    Sepp D. Kohlwein, born in 1954, studied Technical Chemistry at Graz University of Technology and received his technical doctorate there in 1982 at the Institute of Biochemistry. Until 2001, he worked there as an associate professor. After several research stays at the Albert Einstein College of Medi more
