Cresset has provided a donation to Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research’s (NIBR) in support of their TExts to Sub-Saharan Africa (TESSA) project.
Dr. Lewis Whitehead, computational medicinal chemist at NIBR says, “Textbooks have proved invaluable to students over the years. Now that many developed countries are turning to online learning resources, NIBR’s TESSA project is using this opportunity to send the redundant textbooks to Sub-Saharan Africa. We welcome the donation from Cresset to help us in this project.”
“Cresset is delighted to support NIBR’s project,” says Dr. David Bardsley, Cresset’s Commercial Director. “As a company, Cresset is committed to creating software that advances the understanding of the biological effects of molecular changes. We wholeheartedly support NIBR’s project to increase scientific knowledge in sub-Saharan Africa.”
Chinese researchers have developed interfacially polymerized porous polymer particles for low- abundance glycopeptide separation. These polymer particles - with hydrophilic-hydrophobic heterostructured nanopores - can separate low-abundance glycopeptides from complex biological samples with high-abundance background molecules efficiently.
