Senior policymakers and experts in the defense and cleantech industries got a boost today with the announced formation of the NanoAssociation for Natural Resources and Energy Security (NANRES). NANRES is a trade organization designed to advance the research, development, and commercialization of innovative energy and environmental-specific nanotechnologies.
Scientists have resolved a question about how a popular class of drugs used to treat schizophrenia works using biosensors that reveal previously hidden components of chemical communication in the brain.
A team led by Yale University researchers has used nanosensors to measure cancer biomarkers in whole blood for the first time. Their findings could dramatically simplify the way physicians test for biomarkers of cancer and other diseases.
Using atoms at temperatures colder than deep space, Rice University physicists have delivered overwhelming proof for a once-scoffed-at theory that's become a hotbed for research some 40 years after it first appeared.
The Supervisory Council of the Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies (RUSNANO) approved the corporation's participation in the project 'Establishing a multifunctional production of porous nanostructured non-metallic inorganic materials'.
The KIT Center Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics (KCETA) of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) will celebrate the Julius Wess Award ceremony on December 10, 2009. This year's laureate is the British physicist Professor Dr. Jonathan Ellis, who is working at CERN in Geneva.
This book addresses the generic chemical aspects of nanoparticle properties, behaviour, life-cycle analysis, ecotoxicity and modelling as these relate to their effects in the environment - aquatic, terrestrial and atmospheric.
What started out as 'blue-sky' thinking by a group of European researchers could ultimately lead to the commercial mass production of a new generation of optoelectronic components for devices ranging from mobile laboratories to mobile phones.
