A team that includes two faculty affiliated with University of Delaware's Center for Composite Materials and researchers from the Korea Institute of Materials has been selected to receive a $5 million grant from the Korea Ministry of Science and Technology for work in the area of nanotechnology.
Single-molecule biology is undergoing rapid growth. Tremendous technical advances have made it possible to probe molecules one by one, and to produce dynamic images as they twist, twirl, wobble, and unfold. These high-tech methods are the focus of a new book that was just released by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press.
The EU Integrated Project Emerging Nanopatterning Methods (NaPa) held a one-day event to share its novel and exciting results on nanometre-scale fabrication with potential beneficiaries in a rich seminar programme accompanied by a small technical exhibition.
An effective and sensitive new method for detecting and characterizing prions, the infectious compounds behind diseases like mad cow disease, is now being launched by researchers at Linköping University in Sweden, among other institutions.
