Yale researchers describe a breakthrough in safe and effective administration of potential antiviral drugs - small interfering RNA (siRNA) molecules that silence genes - the first step in development of a new kind of treatment for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
RUSNANO anounced that they will invest into new project for a new generation flexible packaging materials fabrication. The production of high- barrier polymer films and flexible packaging materials based on that film would be addressed mostly for the packing of food, cosmetics, domestic chemicals, and forage packing.
SAFENANO, the UK's premier resource on Nanotechnology Health and Safety, is pleased to announce it is to host a Pre-Conference workshop on Nanotechnology Risk Management at the forthcoming NanoMaterials '09 conference in Bonn, Germany.
In a forthcoming Physical Review Letters article, a group of physicists at the University of Nevada, Reno are reporting a refined analysis of experiments on violation of mirror symmetry in atoms that sets new constraints on a hypothesized particle, the extra Z-boson.
The University of South Carolina has been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy to house a research center that is expected to bring $12.5 million in federal funding, the largest award in the university's history, to a team of internationally recognized energy researchers in the College of Engineering and Computing.
In response to the increasing demand for rapid dissemination of urgent research results in physical chemistry, the American Chemical Society (ACS) is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters.
Scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have combined their revolutionary new drug-delivery system with a powerful antimicrobial agent to treat potentially deadly drug-resistant staph infections in mice.
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories have created the first carbon nanotube device that can detect the entire visible spectrum of light, a feat that could soon allow scientists to probe single molecule transformations, study how those molecules respond to light, observe how the molecules change shapes, and understand other fundamental interactions between molecules and nanotubes.
