Chemistry spin-out Ziylo acquired by global healthcare company in $800m deal which could transform the treatment of diabetes 17 August 2018 School of Chemistry spin-out company Ziylo has been bought by global healthcare company Novo Nordisk in a deal which could be worth around $800 million.
- Protocell guests flee the nest 10 September 2018 Researchers at the School of Chemistry have shown that resident artificial cells abandon their protocell hosts by displaying antagonistic behaviour on receiving a chemical signal.
- Enzyme-powered protocells rise to the top 20 August 2018 Researchers in the School of Chemistry have successfully assembled enzyme-powered artificial cells that can float or sink depending on their internal chemical activity. The work provides a new approach to designing complex life-like properties in non-living materials.
