The American molecular biologist Susan Lindquist from the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, is the 2010 recipient of the Max Delbruck Medal awarded in Berlin, Germany. Lindquist, who is also a biology professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), was honored for her work on protein folding.
The side effects of chemotherapy could be largely wiped out by a so-called 'magic bullet' nanotechnology system being researched in Dubai, according to an associate professor at Dubai Pharmacy College.
Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) and the Venezuelan Science Ministry's Center for Science and Technology Researches signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on interacademic cooperation in the field of nanotechnology.
More than 1,000 people, including children, adults and families from throughout upstate New York, converged today on the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany to participate in CNSE Community Day, a highlight of CNSE's unprecedented community and educational outreach initiative known as NANOvember.
Scientists at the Berkeley Lab constructed a nanoscale composite thermoelectric material by wrapping a polymer that conducts electricity around a nanorod of tellurium - a metal coupled with cadmium in today's most cost-effective solar cells. This composite material is easily spin cast or printed into a film from a water-based solution.
Der erste Spatenstich fuer das NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum, kurz NETZ, ist noch ganz frisch: er wurde gestern im Beisein der NRW-Innovationsministerin Svenja Schulze an der Universitaet Duisburg-Essen gesetzt.
Employing new drug-engineering technology, a research team has created a 'nanobioconjugate' drug that may be given by intravenous injection and carried in the blood to target a brain tumor. It is engineered to specifically permeate the tumor cell wall, entering endosomes, mobile compartments within cells.
A research team at the University of Glasgow twisted the light like a corkscrew by using a polarising filter, before shining it onto a specially shaped piece of gold to create the world's first 'super twisting'.
Professor Henny Zandbergen has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant of 2.5 million euros for his research into improved microscopic technologies. The technologies enable Professor Zandbergen to visualise extremely small structures, such as semiconductor nanowires, all the way down to atomic level.
