Grand Challenge Grant: Tailored nanodevices to understand resistance against HIV

Weill Cornell Medical College announced today that it is a Grand Challenges Explorations winner, an initiative funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Researchers at Weill Cornell have been awarded three research grants totaling more than $1.5 million. Weill Cornell's Dr. Juan R. Cubillos-Ruiz, a postdoctoral research associate in medicine in the laboratory of Dean Dr. Laurie H. Glimcher, will pursue an innovative global health and development research project titled, "Tailored Nanodevices to Understand Resistance Against HIV".

A temporary storage for electrons

Scientists have found through spectroscopic investigations on a hydrogen-producing enzyme that the environment of the catalytic site acts as an electron reservoir in the enzyme. Thus, it can very efficiently produce hydrogen, which has great potential as a renewable energy source.

How to control the energy transfer between molecules

A team of scientists from the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Twente, the FOM Institute AMOLF in Amsterdam, and the Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby, has settled a long-standing scientific debate whether the energy transfer between two molecules can be controlled via the nearby environment or not. Their research shows that the energy transfer efficiency can indeed be controlled via the nearby environment.
