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.

Knox Symposium

The Knox equationProfessor Knox was a remarkable man who obtained a BSc (1st class hons) in Chemistry from the University of Edinburgh in 1949 and a PhD from Cambridge University. He returned to a Lectureship at Edinburgh in 1953 and remained with us until his retirement.

ARREST-TB in Moscow

A high level meeting, "Joint efforts against infectious diseases: HIV, TB, HCV", was co-organised by the European Commission, the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the Russian Ministry of Health, along with two key EU funded Horizon 2020 projects, ARREST-TB and CARE, involved in joint research with Russia on infectious diseases – HIV, TB and HCV.

Capps Green Zomaya Memorial Award for Julien Michel

Dr Julien Michel is a co-recipient of the 9th Capps Green Zomaya Memorial Award in 2020. The Award recognises Julien’s work on molecular simulation methods for the optimisation of protein-ligand interactions, and in particular, for the application of this technology to the discovery of a novel class of potent cyclophilin inhibitors with potential application in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
