Results about: mass spectrometry
Our research focuses on three angles of peptide and protein chemistry: the design, synthesis and structure of bioactive molecules. From a structural perspective, we apply modern NMR techniques to study complex molecular recognition processes.
Marta Vilaseca: "The information provided by mass spectrometry facilitates the understanding of diseases"
The latest Meet Our Scientists series is devoted to Marta Vilaseca, manager of the Mass Spectrometry & Proteomics Core Facility at IRB Barcelona.
The video "Proteins caught in fraganti" presents her specialised field.
The findings of an IRB Barcelona study challenge a scientific principle about amyloid beta, a protein linked to Alzheimer’s disease
Natàlia Carulla’s research group provides information that questions the widely accepted premise regarding the number of molecules and the shape of the first aggregates formed by amyloid beta protein
Amyloid beta protein aggregation, the process by which molecules of this protein adhere to each other is strongly associated with the development of Alzheimer’s disease
Carulla’s work ultimately seeks to identify molecules that interfere with the initial stages of aggregation as a strategy to combat the disease.
