A University of Texas at Dallas researcher has received a $1.2 million award from the National Institutes of Health to further develop a new technology for the three-dimensional microscopic imaging of living cells - technology he believes may produce significant new insights into basic cellular processes.
A silicon nanoparticle flying at 8 times the speed of sound can slam into a surface and stick, but it bounces off if colliding at half that speed. This puzzling observation is now explained by computer simulations.
As part of the NanoEurope to be held in St.Gallen (Switzerland) on September 16 and 17, 2008, the 4th International NanoRegulation Conference will focus on this subject of risks associated with nanotechnology.
Small or large companies and tech-savvy entrepreneurs that want to bring nanotechnology products to world markets can now access technical and business services thanks to a new leading-edge centre in Edmonton?s Research Park.
The European Space Agency (ESA) has appointed the UK's National Physical Laboratory to survey nanotechnology capabilities in Europe. NPL's Nanomaterials group will lead a consortium to identify the next generation of nano and smart materials that will be used in future space missions.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have uncovered the first experimental evidence for why the transition temperature of high-temperature superconductors cannot simply be elevated by increasing the electrons' binding energy.
A new high-throughput screening system based on photonic crystals could quickly and cheaply detect molecules that disrupt binding between proteins and DNA, offering a new way to look for novel classes of drugs, say scientists in the U.S.
While sophisticated microscopes allow scientists to take pictures of a single molecule, capturing images of single molecules in a living cell has been particularly challenging. Lawrence Miller, assistant professor of chemistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago, hopes to meet that challenge with the help of a four-year, $1.16 million grant from the National Institutes of Health.
The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Molecular Diagnostics in Cancer Therapeutics Development Meeting features the latest findings in laboratory, translational and clinical cancer research. This year's meeting focuses on new biologic markers and imaging methods.
Using semiconductor nanotechnology, Srinivas Sridhar, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor and Chair of Physics at Northeastern University, and his team of researchers from the university?s Electronic Materials Research Institute have created a new microlens that focuses infrared light at telecommunication frequencies.
