Novel mechanism discovered for communication between proteins that cause 'cell suicide'
A recent study undertaken by investigators at five research centres, amongst which is the CSIC-University of the Basque Country Biophysics Unit, provides new clues for the understanding of the 'cell suicide' process.  View News Article (2010-09-28)

UAB Researchers Draft 3-D Protein Map
A new three-dimensional computer protein map is helping researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) unravel the biological pathways that control brain-cell death after a stroke. View News Article (2009-06-25)

Study identifies important regulator of chronic, low-level inflammation
A new study by a team of Rosalind Franklin University researchers headed by Carl White, PhD, assistant professor of physiology and biophysics, has discovered that the degree of chronic inflammation caused by obesity is highly dependent on levels of the signaling molecule, hydrogen sulfide, which alters the activity of a calcium channel, Orai3. View News Article (2016-01-25)

Relaxation leads to lower elasticity
Many materials, when observed over a sufficiently long period of time, show changes in their mechanical properties. The exact course of these developments depends on the underlying microscopic mechanisms.  View News Article (2011-03-02)

Nanotubes could serve as 'universal scaffolding' for cell membrane channels
A study, in which the Membrane Nanomechanics group led by the Ikerbasque lecturer Dr Vadim Frolov at the Biophysics Unit of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country has participated, suggests that single-wall carbon nanotubes could be used as universal scaffolding to help to replicate the properties of cell membrane channels. View News Article (2014-11-04)

Scientists discover how to improve immune response to cancer at Princess Margaret Hospital
A team of scientists at The Campbell Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research (CFIBCR) at Princess Margaret Hospital and international collaborators have discovered how to trigger an improved immune response to cancer that could be included in new clinical trials that use a patient's own cells to destroy tumours. View News Article (2009-04-27)
