Biomedical engineering professor Kristen Billiar, who will study the mechanics of nanoscale scaffolds for tissue engineering at the National University of Ireland Galway, is the 14th member of the current WPI faculty to be named a Fulbright Scholar
David B. Agus, M.D. brings his talents in researching new treatments for prostate cancer to his role as the director of the new University of Southern California (USC) Westside Cancer Center located in Beverly Hills, as well as directing the newly established Center for Applied Molecular Medicine at the USC Health Science Campus.
In a panel session at the 2009 BIO International Convention next week, individuals on the front lines of the biomedical revolution will explore what it takes to develop and successfully commercialize these 'disruptive' technologies, as well as the impact they could have on our future health and well-being.
The team's plan is to extend the capabilities of a powerful new imaging tool called the dynamic transmission electron microscope or DTEM. These instruments can snap 10 to 100 images per millionth of a second, while capturing details as small as 10 nanometers, or about four times the diameter of a DNA molecule.
Dr. Paul Corkum, an attosecond science researcher at the National Research Council Canada (NRC) and professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Ottawa, is this year's winner of one of Ontario's most prestigious science prizes.
Mobiltelefone und Laptops, die wie bunte Schmetterlinge in der Sonne schillern, sind moeglicherweise schon bald keine Zukunftsmusik mehr. Neue Verfahren zur Nanostrukturierung von Oberflaechen durch kontrollierte Faltenbildung bieten eine elegante und kostenguenstige Moeglichkeit, solche Effekte zu erzielen.
The National Science Foundation announced a special opportunity for funding projects that strengthen the research infrastructure in the nation's science and engineering research and education institutions.
Somewhat the way Harry Potter can cover himself with a cloak and become invisible, Cornell researchers have developed a device that can make it seem that a bump in a carpet -- or, indeed, any flat surface -- isn't there.
The OECD's Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials and Working Party on Nanotechnology are organizing a 'Conference on Potential Environmental Benefits of Nanotechnology: Fostering Safe Innovation-Led Growth' at the OECD Conference Centre in Paris, France, on July 15-17, 2009.
At the LASER World of Photonics 2009 in Munich the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) will show for the first time the currently most powerful ultra-short-pulse laser module with an output of over 400 watts and pulse durations of less than 1 ps.
