This distinction recognizes “outstanding research in Materials Science and Technology which may relate to Biological, Chemical, Engineering, Medical and Physical Sciences.” The Prize is awarded based on contributions made through work done during the ten years preceding the year of the Prize.


Scientists discover a novel methodology for the detection of amyloid fibers, structures associated to neurodegenerative diseases

A team of researchers, with participation of CIC biomaGUNE, CIC bioGUNE, University of Antwerp, University of Extremadura and University of Vigo, has developed a new method for the detection of amyloid fibers from proteins that are usually implicated in Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s or those from prions. Amyloid fibers are structures based on misfolded proteins which get organized into a helicoidal fiber. The misfolded proteins comprising these fibers are ch
