Moonlight Molecules

26 November 2015

Finding new uses for old enzymes: two Trinity Hall fellows, Dr Lutz Jermutus and Dr Florian Hollfelder, have collaborated in a project that has led to the identification of a new application for a well-known human enzyme. Their research was able to show that in tests the enzyme MMP8 could disable a molecule known to play an important role in several inflammatory diseases, such as asthma and dermatitis. For further information, please visit our research page.
