Proteolysis-Targeting Chimera (PROTAC) technology hijacks the cellular quality control machinery to tag unwanted intracellular proteins for degradation. With better pharmaceutic properties than siRNA and CRISPR, PROTACs offer a potentially new therapeutic modality by degrading pathogenic proteins (i.e.,‘making the problem proteins go away’).

Fraïssé theory is a method in classical Model Theory of producing canonical limits of certain families of finite structures. For example, the random graph is the Fraïssé limit of the family of all finite graphs. It turns out that this method can be dualized, with the dualization producing projective Fraïssé limits, and applied to the ...

Understanding, and subsequently being able to manipulate, the excited-state dynamics and decay pathways of photo-excited functional transition-metal complexes is of utmost importance in order to solve grand challenges in solar energy conversion (photocatalysis and solar cells) and data storage. These processes are very complicated and, currently, no single method can encompass all the involved phenomena ... Read more about "Ultrafast photo-excited dynamics in transition-metal complexes"
