Seit 1.12.2009 gibt es am Leibniz-Institut fuer Festkoerper- und Werkstoffforschung Dresden (IFW) ein Zentrum fuer Spektroelektrochemie. Damit soll die Entwicklung spektroelektrochemischer Methoden vorangetrieben und vor allem fuer die Anwendung in der Industrie attraktiv gemacht werden.
The Institute of Food Technologists released three review articles in the Journal of Food Science that were presented at the IFT Annual Meeting in 2009. The articles provide greater detail on nanotechnology science and its application to food.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has awarded a $10.1 million, five-year grant to an interdisciplinary team of researchers led by University of Wisconsin-Madison Mechanical Engineering Professor Xiaochun Li. The researchers are working to implement nanotechnology into the traditional casting industry, which could yield high-quality aluminum and magnesium nanocomposites in the next five years.
In an effort to enhance the natural process, a team led by Erin Lavik, a new Case Western Reserve University biomedical engineering professor, and her former doctoral student, James P. Bertram, built synthetic platelets that show promise in halting internal and external bleeding.
GlaxoSmithKline and Ann Arbor-based NanoBio Corporation announced today that they have signed an exclusive over-the-counter licensing agreement for NanoBio's unique nanoemulsion treatment for cold sores in the United States and Canada.
