Tracking proteins in the heart of cells

An interdisciplinary team of NCCR members has been able to follow precisely the path taken by a motor protein in cells, paving the way for the study of the transport activity and distribution of cargoes in cells.

A sulfur molecule to block the coronavirus

Some viruses can get inside cells via a mechanism that involves sulfur organic molecules. An NCCR team has discovered effective inhibitors and blocked the uptake of SARS-CoV-2.

The physical forces of cells in action

Hot from the press of JACS! Mechanosensitive fluorescent probes to Image membrane tension in mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum & lysosomes! Congrats to our NCCR groups who made it happen!

Double-bridged peptides bind any disease target

NCCR scientists have developed a new type of “double-bridged peptide” that can be tailored to bind tightly to disease targets of interest. The work is published in Nature Chemistry.
