Study Maps Nanobody Structure, Leading to New Ways to Potentially Fight Diseases
For the first time in the UAE, researchers at NYU Abu Dhabi have used nuclear magnetic resonance techniques to determine the structure of a specific nanobody, Nb23, potentially leading to a better understanding of how this small protein can fight diseases ranging such as arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, lymphoma, and breast cancer.
Study Finds Inhibitors of Protein Aggregation Associated with Alzheimer’s Disease Can Develop Cancer Therapies
Small molecule designed to inhibit protein aggregation associated with Alzheimer’s disease and Type II diabetes is shown to effectively reactivate a critical tumor suppressor protein inactivated in more than one-half of all human cancers
Nanobodies derived from the South American llama could help scientists provide a more efficient COVID-19 screening method and, potentially, a robust antiviral drug for coronavirus patients.
Researchers Develop Materials For Oral Delivery of Insulin Medication Which Could Potentially Replace Injections
A revolutionary technology developed within the Trabolsi Research Group at NYUAD could dramatically improve the well-being of diabetic patients through a simple and straightforward method.
Researchers Shed New Light on Mysteries Behind Light Emission of Fireflies
