Interview to J. Tamayo in Chemistry World “Cantilevers bend over for drug detection”

Dr. Tamayo is interviewed in -chemistry world about work by R. McKendry with nanomechanical sensors to detect binding interactions between drugs and their targets. The researchers, based in the UK, Australia and Kenya, say their technique is sensitive enough to be used for high-throughput drug screening and could speed the development of new drug-resistant antibiotics.

  • Living cells exhibit mechanical resonances

    The Bionanomechanics group has achieved a significant advance in the understanding of the mechanical properties of human cells: it has successfully demonstrated that living cells, specifically human breast epithelial cells, exhibit mechanical resonances, a phenomenon previously considered implausible due to the extraordinary viscosity and complexity of cells in physiological media. https://journals.aps.org/prxlife/accepted/75070K26Wa31f40a872881247617595fa407ee3d3 You can learn more…
