Businesses, researchers, civil society representatives and regulators involved or interested in nanotechnologies are invited to take part in the final International Conference of the FramingNano FP7 project whose primary objective has been the development of a sustainable governance framework for nanotechnologies.
Thilo Hofmann vom Department fuer Umweltgeowissenschaften und Tom Battin vom Department fuer Limnologie der Universitaet Wien untersuchten mit ihren Teams die Wirkung von kuenstlich hergestellten Nanopartikeln auf Mikroorganismen in Gewaessern.
IMEC presents a unique microchip with microscopic nail structures that enable close communication between the electronics and biological cells. The new chip is a mass-producible, easy-to-use tool in electrophysiology research, for example for fundamental research on the functioning and dysfunctioning of the brain.
The Parliamentary Secretary for Health, Mark Butler, today announced the release of a public discussion paper inviting consultations on a Rudd Government proposal to strengthen regulation of industrial nanomaterials use in Australia.
To activate genes which might also play a role in carcinogenesis, the genetic material first needs to be unwrapped and made accessible for other cell components. Using a new biophysical method called single molecule spectroscopy, scientists observed these mechanisms directly and to characterize intermediate stages on the way to free genetic material.
Restrictions on liquids in carry-on bags on commercial airliners could become a thing of the past thanks to a revolutionary nano-electric device which detects potentially hazardous liquids in luggage in a fraction of a second.
Unveiling plans for a 100,000(+)-square-foot research facility located at the South Campus of Gateway University Research Park in Greensboro, N.C., North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro will host the official groundbreaking of the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) on Monday, Nov. 9.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany today welcomed more than 1,000 visitors of all ages from throughout upstate New York to participate in Community Day, part of CNSE's unprecedented community and educational outreach initiative known as NANOvember.
Researchers at Purdue University have discovered a new approach for repairing damaged nerve fibers in spinal cord injuries using nano-spheres that could be injected into the blood shortly after an accident.
NanoTecNexus (NTN), formerly NanoBioNexus, already acclaimed for its educational forums and nanobiotechnology expertise, announces the launch of new courses, seminars, and lectures to be delivered online with proven and easy to use webinar tools.
The European Commission has opened a public consultation in order to receive input from all people and organisations involved or interested in nanosciences and nanotechnologies research in Europe, and notably research, policy makers, industry, media and civil society organisations.
