Anyone facing chemotherapy would welcome an advance promising to dramatically reduce their dose of these often harsh drugs. Using nanotechnology, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have taken a step closer to that goal.
With more than 20 full-size coloured reconstructions of important Greek and Roman works, 'Multicoloured Gods' breaks new ground as the first large-scale effort to recreate the original appearance of ancient sculpture. Starting off in Munich, the exhibition has toured major European cities and is now in the US.
University of Iowa researchers have received a $6.25 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense as part of a multi-university research initiative to design and develop nano-magnetic materials and devices that may lead to more efficient computers and cell phones.
A research team from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland has succeeded in cooling atoms of a rare-earth element, erbium, to within two millionths of a degree of absolute zero using a novel trapping and laser cooling technique.
In a new paper researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology?s Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) have demonstrated that a novel class of materials could enable a practical hydrogen fuel tank.
Northwestern University researchers have shown that a new nano-engineered gel inhibits the formation of scar tissue at the injury site and enables the severed spinal cord fibers to regenerate and grow.
The world?s top laser experts will gather in Kissimmee, FL, to share innovations in lasers and emerging technologies at the 28th Annual Scientific Conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS).
Researchers from the Nano Machine Center at the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA have developed a novel type of nanomachine that can capture and store anticancer drugs inside tiny pores and release them into cancer cells in response to light.
For quite some time, DNA, the stuff our genes are made of, has also been considered the building material of choice for nanoscale objects. A team in Germany has now made a dodecahedron (a geometric shape with twelve surfaces) from DNA building blocks.
