Laser-Activated Magnets Increase Data Speeds

Research by Dr Olof Johansson which has recently been published in Nature Chemistry has potential to boost the storage capacities and processing speeds of hard drives.

The group's research suggests single-molecule magnets could be used to store data, with lasers used to both store and access the data. This process could allow data to be processed and accessed up to 100 times faster than with current technologies.

New Paper Published

Research carried out by Professor Colin Campbell's group, with collaborators in the University of Edinburgh's School of Biology, Jerusalem and Liege has recently been published online in the Proceedings of theNational Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. The paper is titled "Intracellular redox potential is correlated with miRNA expression in MCF7 cells under hypoxic conditions ".

New Paper Finds Crystal Polymorphs of Trial Cancer Drug

Prof Colin Pulham and Dr Sumit Konar from the School of Chemistry recently collaborated with University College London and Eli Lilly and Company on a paper that has now been accepted in JACS. The paper details research that comnbined multiple methods to find the crystal structures of all 10 unsolvated polymorphs of galunisertib, which is currently undergoing trials as a cancer drug.

Structure and Motion Captured by Ultrafast X-rays

Dr Adam Kirrander and his team have published a paper in Nature Chemistry with collaborators at Brown University and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The experiment exploits the brightness and high time resolution of the new x-ray free-electron laser, LCLS in California, to capture the vibrational motion of an excited molecule in detail.
