Discovery of microscopic metallic particles in the human brain

A UK-led international team of researchers has discovered elemental metallic copper and iron in the human brain for the first time. The team, comprised of scientists from Keele University and the University of Warwick, in collaboration with the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), used the UK’s national synchrotron Diamond Light Source, and the Advanced Light Source located in California (USA) to identify elemental metallic copper and magnetic elemental iron within the amyloid plaques, chemical forms of copper and iron previously undocumented in human biology.

Pint of Science returns bringing Warwick scientists out of the lab and into your living room

The public science festival, Pint of Science, kicks off next week with experts from the University of Warwick talking about their research live in your living room.


Using phage to discover new antifreeze proteins

Controlling, and mitigating the effects of ice growth is crucial to protect infrastructure, help preserve frozen cells and to enhance texture of frozen foods. An international collaboration of Warwick Scientists working with researchers from Switzerland have used a phage display platform to discover new, small, peptides which function like larger antifreeze proteins. This presents a route to new, easier to synthesise, cryoprotectants.
