Scientists at the NCCR Molecular Systems Engineering have used the simplest approach yet to produce artificial beta cells from human kidney cells. Like their natural model, the artificial cells act as both sugar sensors and insulin producers. > Read more
Matile’s group has found that a sulfur atom, if carefully inserted into a molecule, can not only become an extremely effective catalyst but can also operate with greater precision. This discovery has the potential to revolutionize the world of synthetic organic chemistry. > Read more
