New nanomaterial, based on copper nanoparticles inhibits the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus proteins

New nanomaterial, based on copper nanoparticles inhibits the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus proteins

A new nanomaterial, based on copper nanoparticles, inhibits the spread of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. “This new technology consists of nanoparticles that they interact with the coronavirus proteins, modifying them through an oxidation mechanism and blocking their ability to infect human cells”, Says José Miguel Palomo, member of  GlycoNanoProbes COST Action 19132 and team leader in this development, at the head of the Biological Chemistry and Biocatalysis group of the Institute of...

Call for Abstracts: WG2 Virtual Meetings

Since we can not meet face-to-face due to the Covid-19 pandemics, we are planning to hold virtual meetings. Therefore, we would like to invite you to give 30min-talks and 5-minute sound bites from early-career researchers. The deadline to give a title for a presentation is next Friday (November 27th). As for the first weekly meeting, we are going to make arrangements for an afternoon of the week starting on December 7th. (Exact dates and times will be later announced), and we might include a...

COST Academy Webinars: Intellectual Property (IP) and Standardisation.

COST Academy is organizing two webinars on the topics of Intellectual Property (IP) and Standardisation. The topics are closely related and relevant to the work of many COST Actions. The webinars are therefore organised with the specific target group of COST Action participants in mind, and will be delivered by the European IP Helpdesk and CEN and CENELEC. Tthe level of both webinars will be introductory. Please note that it is possible to register for one or both webinars.   COST Academy...
