New chemical tools to modify and study biomolecules
EPFL chemists have developed new tools to modify sulfur-containing biomolecules, from simple amino acids to large protein complexes such as nucleosomes. These modifications then provide attachment points for two new functional groups, enabling studies of biochemical interactions on the single-molecule level.
Hydrogel developed at EPFL offers real promise in treating diabetes
Researchers at EPFL have developed a hydrogel that offers unrivaled protection against transplanted cell rejection. The School’s Technology Transfer Office has licensed the new product to Cell-Caps, a Geneva-based startup specialized in cell encapsulation for treating diabetes.
