    X-rays reveal the important role of copper in Parkinson’s disease

    Changes in metal ions essential for the normal function of the brain have long been suspected to play a role in the neurodegeneration that characterises Parkinson’s disease (PD). Now, scientists have investigated changes in copper (Cu) and Cu-associated pathways in the brain of cases of Parkinson’s disease and found that the levels of copper are […]

    France (Grenoble) and Brazil (Campinas) come together to found new International Associated Laboratory

    On July 12 of this year, the Grenoble-based Institute for Structural Biology (IBS-CNRS/CEA/UJF) and Campinas, Brazil’s LNBio1 and CNPEM2 labs signed an agreement to found an International Associated Laboratory (IAL). The new lab, dubbed “Bacwall,” will examine the macromolecular complexes that participate in cell-wall synthesis and virulence, their structure, and how they are assembled. A […]

    The race towards new antibiotics

    The race towards new antibiotics

    A growing number of previously treatable diseases are becoming harder, if not impossible to treat, as bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics. To tackle this issue Stephen Cusack’s group at EMBL Grenoble, together with California-based company Anacor Pharmaceuticals, is taking part in a global race to develop new antibiotics. Eight years ago, Anacor discovered that small […]
