Final day of the exhibition! 

It was another really busy day here at the ACS Fall Meeting! We met with Angela Russell (University of Oxford, UK), Concepción González-Bello (Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Spain) and Barbara Mroczkowskib and Andrew Flint (NCI, USA) to discuss their latest research and presentations here at the meeting, so look out for these interviews! Talk highlights today included the ACS Division of Medicinal Chemistry awards ceremony, Andrea Bortolato (Shrodinger, NY, USA) discussing the opportunities for advanced computational modelling in GPCR drug discovery, as well as a stream highlighting projects of the NCI Chemical Biology Consortium, arranged by Barbara Mroczkowskib.

Can donated blood be made universal?Nanobots fighting nerve agents: an enzyme driven fluid pump
Scientists from the University of British Columbia have identified human gut enzymes with the capability of removing A and B antigens from red blood cells, converting blood to universal blood type O.Researchers from Penn State have been studying the movement of enzymes found in nature and found that they can harness the energy from catalyzing a reaction and use it to act as a nano-fluidic pump.
