The development of an improved ‘superglue’ technology by Department of Biochemistry's Dr Mark Howarth and his group could help in cell capture approaches aimed at detecting and treating cancer.

Dr Howarth together with DPhil students Gianluca Veggiani and Jacob Fierer have published their work in PNAS (1). They describe the new tool, developed from an earlier approach in which they engineered a stable interaction that could be used to lock molecules together.
