Researchers have shown that nanodiamonds - much like the carbon structure as that of a sparkling 14 karat diamond but on a much smaller scale - are very effective at delivering chemotherapy drugs to cells without the negative effects associated with current drug delivery agents.
The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) has developed a new initiative to identify technologies that are making an impact across the industry. Technologies that Could Change the Way You Manufacture is a member-driven program to discover and showcase new and emerging technologies that are making a difference in manufacturing.
The LA Auto Show, which will take place from November 16-25, 2007 in Los Angeles, CA, will include a Design Challenge a part of the Design Los Angeles automobile designers' conference. The topic this year is RoboCar of 2057.
Some 3500 visitors attended the NanoEurope event in St.Gallen in mid-September to familiarize themselves with promising future applications of nanotechnology. Nanomedicine was one of the focal subjects discussed at the NanoEurope 2007.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany today announced that a globally recognized expert in metrology technology for nanoelectronics is the newest addition to its growing cadre of world-class faculty.
The University at Buffalo has received a $750,000 grant from the New York State Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR) to recruit an internationally known scientist in nanotechnology.
In 2008 the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) will celebrate its 200th anniversary. To mark this special occasion the KNAW will organise a number of scientific and festive events on the theme 'the magic of science', including a photography competition.
Expert disputes the claim that the so-called agglomeration of engineered nanomaterials will result in super-sized clusters so large that they cannot penetrate deep inside the body, thereby eliminating the potential for harm.
A transistor containing quantum dots that can count individual photons (the smallest particles of light) has been designed and demonstrated at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
