In the September/October issue of Biotechnology Progress, Murphy and Roberts provide a Review on misfolded and aggregated proteins, describing their role as both “…a bothersome byproduct of productive activities” and their role in neurodegenerative diseases. They are particularly interested in focusing on the principal features to include in studies in the protein aggregation field to improve quality and design of experiments and publications.
In the August issue of the AIChE Journal, the cover "Perspective", comes from Dr. Bill Banholzer, Chief Technology Officer of The Dow Chemical Company, who along with colleague and co-author Mark Jones, articulate the importance of sound engineering and innovation, and provide some thought-provoking observations on thermodynamics, energy, and scale. They elaborate on examples regarding the practicality of biofuels for energy and chemicals, and the challenges of CO2 utilization.
