23/03/22 - We are really excited to share our last collaboration CIQUS together with Werner Nau on Boron Superchaotropic Clusters for the transport (and delivery) of bioactive hydrophilic molecules across lipid membranes and inside cells Today @Nature
21/03/23 - Congratulations to Adrian Sánchez for the Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowship!! It feels the idea deserves funding!! Now, we make it real together!
01/08/21 - So exciting that our tech transfer project TraffikGene has advanced towards the funding phase of the Ignicia Proof of Concept program by Axencia Galega de Innovación (GAIN). Our peptide-based gene delivery technology gets
yet one step closer to market!
08/12/20 - Exciting end to a not-so-exciting year 2020! Marta´s paper on pore-forming oligoalanine peptides has been finally published in RSC Chemical Biology. Huge congratulations, very well deserved!
16/11/20 - Ghibom's paper in collaboration with the Salvatella group at IRB Barcelona is finally out. Interesting how sinuclein domains can be used to glue nanoparticles on surfaces. Check it out!
25/08/2020 - Our second paper on 2D supramolecular materials based on cyclic peptides is out. Congratulations Sandra! You can have a look at it here.
13/05/2020 - We have been awarded with a Instituto de Salud Carlos III grant to help in the fight against coronavirus pandemic. After many years of optimization of our peptide amphiphiles' tranfection performance it will be put to the test for the development of a Spanish vaccine against COVID-19. We are all-in for this massive challenge!
04/02/2020 - Ale’s paper is out in @angew_chem!! The supramolecular polymerization of cyclic peptides at the core or the cortex of water microdroplets is regulated under microfluidic control of pH and ionic strength. Read about this here!
08/01/2020 - Exciting start of 2020 with a @J_A_C_S cover! A 2D supramolecular material is assembled by new leucine zippers between peptide nanotubes. 26 years since the seminal report by Ghadiri et al, we move to the second dimension by @InsuaNacho.
23/12/2019 - Great end of 2019!! Our @ERC_Research PoC project Traffikgene has been recognized with the "Best Idea Award" from @BiogaGalicia. Congrats to Alberto and Marisa!! Galician Gene Transport Technology on the Move!!
12/10/2019. Our collaboration with @MetBioCat is in the front cover of @ChemicalScience. Thanks Eugenio @ChemBioUSC for the awesome drawing!
