L. C. Brinson (Duke U.), W. Chen (Northwestern U.), L. Schadler (U. VT)

With an unprecedented combination of mechanical and electrical properties, polymer nanocomposites have the potential to be widely used across multiple industries. Tailoring nanocomposites to meet application specific requirements remains a challenging task, owing to the vast, mixed-variable design space that includes composition and microstructures of the nanocomposite material.

Industrial Collaboration:pH-responsive Inhibitors

Jana Shen

Targeting β -secretase (BACE1) with small-molecule inhibitors offers a promising route for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. However, the intricate pH dependence of BACE1 function and inhibitor efficacy has posed a major challenge for structure-based drug design.
