Novel nanotechnology method could reduce consumption of samples needed for drug testing “by a billion times”


Revolutionary nanotechnology method could help improve the development of new medicine and reduce costs. Researchers from the Nano-Science Center and the Department of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen have developed a new screening method that makes it possible to study cell membrane proteins that bind drugs, such as cannabis and adrenaline, while reducing the consumption of precious samples by a billion times.READ MORE ON UNIVERSITY OF COPENHAGEN | NANO-SCIENCE CENTER
