Marathon-running molecule could speed up the race for new neurological treatments

Scientists at the University of Warwick have discovered a new process that sets the fastest molecular motor on its marathon-like runs through our neurons.


Bacteria such as E. coli detected in minutes by new technology from the University of Warwick

Scientists at the University of Warwick have discovered that healthy bacteria cells and cells inhibited by antibiotics or UV light show completely different reactions to electrical stimulus. The findings could lead to the development of medical devices which can rapidly detect live bacterial cells, evaluate the effects of antibiotics on growing bacteria colonies, or reveal antibiotic-resistant bacteria.


Evidence of Salmonella Paratyphi C found for the first time in medieval northern Europe

Genome research conducted by the University of Warwick suggests that enteric fever, a potentially lethal disease more commonly found in hot countries, was present in medieval Europe.


Enzyme discovery could help in fight against TB

An enzyme structure discovery made by scientists at the University of Warwick could help to eradicate tuberculosis (TB).
