Zebrafish embryos help prove what happens to nanoparticles in the blood

What happens to the nanoparticles when they are injected into the bloodstream, for example, to destroy solid tumours? With new results published in ACS Nano, researchers from Aarhus University are now ready to tackle such a challenging question using zebrafish embryos as a new study model in nanomedicine and nanotoxicology.

Inauguration of the Danish National Cryo-EM Facility, EMBION

EMBION, Denmark's national cryo-EM facilities, will be inaugurated on 12 October. Cryo-EM (cryogenic electron microscopy) is an important technique in molecular cell biology, medicine and biotechnology. The new research infrastructure's facilities are placed at Aarhus University and University of Copenhagen.

A Danish research team describes in an article in Nature Communications how a well-described circular RNA molecule, which was thought to be carcinogenic, is not found in the cancer cells after all.
