Die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft foerdert mit 2,2 Millionen Euro eine neue Forschergruppe unter Leitung der TU Berlin die die elektronischen und optischen Eigenschaften von Nanoteilchen und kleinen molekularen Aggregaten aus Kohlenstoff und Silizium gezielt veraendern will.
New work focused on making a new artificial photosynthetic material which uses plant, bacterial, frog and fungal enzymes, trapped within a foam housing, to produce sugars from sunlight and carbon dioxide.
Pancreatic cancer requires a radical new therapy. A promising approach may come in the form of tiny gold nanoparticles - loaded with a therapeutic agent to kill cancer - in a novel procedure called nanoembolization.
NanoProfessor has announced the findings of its nanotechnology education research study, which evaluated the impact nanotechnology-focused curriculum has in influencing students' selection of a community college or technical institute.

nano tech 2010 International Nanotechnology Exhibition and Conference, held for the ninth time from February 17 to February 19, 2010 ended successfully. 654 exhibitors presented the latest nano technologies and products and, during the three exhibition days, 42,381 visitors gathered at Tokyo Big Sight.
A simple way to prolong cassava's shelf life could help farmers avoid that waste and sell their crop beyond their local region. Paula Hammond, MIT professor of chemical engineering, and other scientists are now working on an innovative way to help them do that, using nanotechnology.
The film Avatar isn't the only 3-D blockbuster making a splash this winter. A team of scientists from Houston's Texas Medical Center this week unveiled a new technique for growing 3-D cell cultures, a technological leap from the flat petri dish that could save millions of dollars in drug-testing costs.
