New efficient way to engineer nanostructures mimicking natural immune response complexes

Collaboration between Novo Nordisk and Professor Kurt Gothelf’s laboratory at Aarhus University yields novel method to engineer large multi-antibody-like nanostructures using DNA nanotechnology. The results demonstrate the potential for assembly of multiple proteins and also other materials to enhance properties of traditional therapies.

On 3 May, the Department of Engineering opened its 2,100 m2 Deep Tech Experimental Hub research facility. The experimental hub is a critical element in developing research-based engineering science study programmes. These are a strategic focus for Aarhus University. Photo: Lars Kruse, AU.
