29/08/2017

NanoGUNE is searching for outstanding early-stage and junior researchers interested in applying for a research fellowship within the "La Caixa" funding programs. The JuniorLeader program call for postdoctoral researchers is now open, and the INPhINIT program call for predoctoral students will be open soon.

The size of animals dating back 100-350 million years ago inferred from resurrected proteins

04/07/2017

The prestigious journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology has published a piece of research conducted by CIC nanoGUNE researchers. They have experimentally reconstructed titin fragments from their common ancestors and measured their mechanochemical properties. They have discovered a correlation between the properties of the protein measured on a nanoscale and animal size.

New step towards clean energy production from enzymes

23/08/2016

Oxygen inhibits hydrogenases, a group of enzymes that are able to produce and split hydrogen. This degradation is fatal for possible biotechnological applications of these enzymes for the production of clean energy. Understanding the mechanisms of this process is hence essential. An international team led by researchers from UCL (UK), CNRS (France) and nanoGUNE/Ikerbasque, have combined theory and experiment to characterize each chemical reaction step that results in the reduction of oxygen by the enzyme. These results are being published this week in the journal Nature Chemistry.

ACSnano: "Probing the Effect of Force on HIV-1 Receptor CD4"

14/11/2014

NanoGUNE’s Nanobiomechanics Group, led by Ikerbasque Professor Raul Perez-Jimenez, in collaboration with the Department of Biological Sciences of the Columbia University (US) and the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center (US), has tested that mechanical force may help HIV to invade cells. The research has been recently published in ACS Nano (DOI: 10.1021/nn503557w)

ETP Nanomedicine Annual Event 2014

Nanomedicine Annual Event
16/10/2014

NanoGUNE hosts more than 120 experts in nanotechnology and medicine at the 2014 Annual Event & General Assembly of the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN). The ETPN event has taken place on 15 and 16 October 2014, co-organized by the nanoBasque Agency (SPRI) and nanoGUNE, the Basque Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center.

Fundación Repsol Entrepreneurs Fund supports EVOLGENE project

22/08/2014

The EVOLGENE project, directed by nanoGUNE’s researcher Raul Perez-Jimenez, has been selected as one of the four “Ideas” that will be supported by the Entrepreneurs Fund of Fundación Repsol. The paleoenzymology project aims at reconstructing ultra-efficient ancestral enzymes for use in industry.

The forces brought to bear on proteins: towards a new biology

17/09/2013

NanoGune’s Nanobiomechanics Group led by Raúl Pérez-Jimenez is studying the evolution of proteins dating back to the origin of life, the effects that mechanical forces can have on them, and protein involvement in certain diseases
