New Drugs for old Bugs (Drug Development – Yonath & Kobilka)
We should all be worried by the growing number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and we urgently need to develop new drugs, says Ada Yonath. She and Brian Kobilka won Nobel Prizes for using x-ray crystallography to understand cell structures that are vital targets for drug development. In this film, three researchers challenge the structural approach and […]
Industry’s rare resources (Catalysis – Grubbs & Ertl)
Almost all industrial processes rely on catalysts, which increase the rate of chemical reactions. Many catalysts are made from rare metals – and the young researchers in this film are worried about them running out. They put the problem to Nobel laureates Robert Grubbs and Gerhard Ertl. The group discusses how dwindling supplies of rare […]
