Mushroom derived bioactive compounds can combat COVID19, other viral infections

Team L&M Natural anti-infective, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antithrombotic products derived from a wide range of easily sourced mushrooms and their bioactive molecules have the potential to combat covid, according to a new paper. The Covid19 pandemic brought the focus on bioactive ingredients that boost the immune system. Consequently, scientists worldwide resumed intensive studies on bioactive […]Read More


Scientists develop new artificial light-harvesting system using organic nanotubes

Team L&M Inspired by natural photosynthetic systems, researchers have developed a new method of harvesting artificial light using organic nanotubes, which can be utilised in solar cells, photocatalysis, optical sensors, and tunable multi-color light-emitting materials. In Nature, plants and photosynthetic bacteria capture sunlight and deliver it to the reaction center through a cascade of energy […]Read More


Protein found in Zebrafish can regenerate aged discs in human

Team L&M A protein found in the backbone of zebrafish that plays a positive role in disc maintenance and promotes regeneration in aged discs between vertebrae can have potential therapeutic implications to promote regeneration in degenerated human discs. In humans, discs degenerate naturally, leading to many related health concerns, including low back, neck, and appendage […]Read More


Delhi-based tech start-up develops anti-pollution helmet for two-wheeler riders

Team L&M An anti-pollution helmet developed by a Delhi-based startup can help two-wheeler riders breathe clean air. The helmet developed by Shellios Technolabs has a Bluetooth-enabled app that lets the rider know when the helmet requires cleaning. The start-up received seed funding from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and was incubated at Science […]Read More


New material that can convert infrared light to renewable energy

Team L&M Scientists have discovered a novel material that can emit, detect, and modulate infrared light with high efficiency making it useful for solar and thermal energy harvesting and for optical communication devices. Electromagnetic waves are a renewable energy source used for electricity generation, telecommunication, defence and security technologies, sensors, and healthcare services. Scientists use […]Read More
