Clemson University researchers developing imaging agents to allow a new method of detecting breast cancers have received $180,000 from the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American women.
University of Utah scientists successfully created a sensitive prototype device that could test for dozens or even hundreds of diseases simultaneously by acting like a credit card-swipe machine to scan a card loaded with microscopic blood, saliva or urine samples.
Sun Qingfeng with the Lab for Condensed Matter Theory and Materials Computation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Institute of Physics made an intensive study on the electron transport through graphene p-n junctions.
This technique will be useful for the large scale, accelerated assembly of SWNTs at room temperature, which is more suitable for nanoscale electronic applications, such as flat panel displays and electronic memory devices.
As developments in nanoscience and nanotechnology reshape our world on a daily basis, the California NanoSystems Institute ( CNSI ) at UCLA is helping Los Angeles-area high school science teachers incorporate these subjects into their standard core curriculum.
Leading European energy research institutes have joined together to found the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA), with the aim of speeding up the development of the new energy technologies that Europe needs if it is to address the triple challenge of climate change, energy security and competitiveness.
Chemistry researchers at The University of Warwick and the John Innes Centre, have found a novel signalling molecule that could be a key that will open up hundreds of new antibiotics unlocking them from the DNA of the Streptomyces family of bacteria.
Researchers in China and Switzerland are reporting the highest efficiency ever for a promising new genre of solar cells, which many scientists think offer the best hope for making the sun a mainstay source of energy in the future.
The University of Queensland?s (UQ) Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) received a $100,000 Grand Challenges Explorations Grant for Innovative Global Health Research by Professor Mark Kendall.
A novel technique under development at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) uses a relatively inexpensive optical microscope to quickly and cheaply analyze nanoscale dimensions with nanoscale measurement sensitivity.
