Researchers have described with single-molecule precision how copper ions cause prion proteins to misfold and seed the misfolding and clumping of nearby prion proteins.
Henderson, along with his former graduate student Divita Mathur, studies how to build nanomachines that may have real-world medical applications someday soon. He and Mathur recently published an article in the peer-reviewed Scientific Reports describing his laboratory’s successful effort to design a nanomachine capable of detecting a mockup of the Ebola virus.
It’s easy to think of the electrical grid as the power plants, the high voltage lines, the transmission towers, the substations and all the low-voltage distribution lines that bring power to our homes and businesses. An attack on that grid would involve getting out and cutting lines or dropping towers.
A recently awarded federal grant will help the innovative Iowa State University STRIPS program expand its mission to protect soil and water quality by planting strips of native prairie on farmland.
Two Iowa State University undergraduate students joined a global challenge to reduce food insecurity through their work in the Land O’Lakes Global Food Challenge Emerging Leaders for Food Security fellowship. Their goal is to find ways to eliminate waste at different points in the supply chain to prevent spoilage.
