- Sticky protocells join forces in prototissue beating 8 October 2018 A research team at the University of Bristol has developed a chemical approach to the construction of a tissue-like material from synthetic cells that is capable of beating when heated and cooled.
- Modification of amino acids provides new starting point for development of medical treatments 4 October 2018 Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and modifying amino acids chemically allows scientists to develop new molecules that can provide the starting point for developing new medical treatments such as antibiotics.
- The latest edition of Chemistry Explored is now available online 4 October 2018 Chemistry Explored is the annual magazine written by staff and students within the School of Chemistry
- PhD student, Lara Lalemi, named in Bristol’s inaugural BME Powerlist 1 October 2018 Published on 01 October to mark the beginning Black History Month, the project aims to celebrate excellence across a broad spectrum of fields – from activism to arts, politics to business – and provide role models for the next generation.
- How quantum dots invade model cell membranes 20 September 2018 Research from Wuge Briscoe's group published in Nanoscale.
- Protocell guests flee the nest 10 September 2018 Researchers at the School of Chemistry have shown that resident artificial cells abandon their protocell hosts by displaying antagonistic behaviour on receiving a chemical signal.
- Enzyme-powered protocells rise to the top 20 August 2018 Researchers in the School of Chemistry have successfully assembled enzyme-powered artificial cells that can float or sink depending on their internal chemical activity. The work provides a new approach to designing complex life-like properties in non-living materials.
