For years, phonon polaritonhas been getting wide attention in condensed matter physics, optics and material science. After over ten years of efforts by the team of Prof. Wu Qiang and Prof. Xu Jingjun of Nankai University, the fundamental system of theoretical, experimental and applied research into terahertz phonon polaritonhas been constructed.Based on the Huang equations, they have developed the modified Huang equations that extend from linearity to nonlinearity, and realized the giant nonline
Recently, a Nankai University students’ team of scientific research and innovation of “Iron Catalysis” has discovered a new method for generating free radicals under mild conditions without additional chemical oxidants. The team has also applied this method to the modification and transformation of inactivated methyl and methylene, which are the most difficult to react in organic synthesis, and has achieved several breakthroughs in the construction of C-C and C-hetero with cheap metallic iron. I
Recently, Professor Hu Xiangang’s team from the School of Environmental Science and Engineering of Nankai University has made breakthroughs in expanding machine learning algorithms to predict the biological effects of nanomaterials; they explored the mechanism of biological effects of nanomaterials by enhancing the interpretability of machine learning, thus providing a fresh researching angle to solve this issue. On May 26, a paper introducing the scientific research resultsDeep exploration of r
On May 22, at the closing ceremony of the Fifth WIC held in Tianjin, the China Institute of New Generation Artificial Intelligence Development Strategiesreleased its annual report on the intelligent technology industry for the fourth consecutive year, the Chinas New Generation AI Technology Industry Development Report 2021 and Chinas New Generation AI Technology Industry Regional Competitiveness Evaluation Index 2021,which have attracted great interest from the academic and industrial communitie

During vaccine development, serological testing is used to verify the immunogenicity of the vaccine and the level of induced neutralizing antibodies. Evaluating the vaccine-induced antibodies at the molecular level helps to better understand the mechanism of the vaccine.Recently, Nankai University’s research team, together with the counterparts from Beijing Institute of Bioproducts Co., Ltd., Shanghai Institute for Advanced Immunochemical Studies, the Fifth Medical Center of the Chinese People’s
Recently, the Nankai university research team made up of Guo Yu, Zhang Hongkai and Rao Zihe together with Harbour BioMed have completed the preclinical studies of their jointly developed severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) neutralizing antibodies. As the studies showed, the high-resolution X-ray crystallography structures unveiled three neutralizing antibodies (NAb) with novel binding epitopes, amongwhich PR1077 scored high in the antiviral efficiency in an animal model.
Guo Yu, Zhang Hongkai, and Rao Zihe and their joint research team of Nankai University, successfully isolated neutralizing antibodies P4A1, P20A2 and P20A3 from patients recovered from Covid-19 in collaboration with Xinhua Hospital of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Wuhan Institute of Virology of CAS, and HiFiBiO Therapeutics (Hangzhou). Withthe high-resolution structural information provided by X-ray crystallography, they explained the pharmacological mechanism of the neutralizing antibody P4A1.

Environmental contamination by mercury in its organometallic form, methylmercury, remains a major global concern due to its neurotoxicity, environmental persistence and biomagnification through the food chain.Methylmercury was also the “culprit” of the “Minamata disease”in Japan in the 1950s,causinga worldwide scandal. However, for a long time, the mystery of methylmercury formation in the environment has prevented people from controlling methylmercury pollution fromthe source.Recently, a resear
