Northwestern University researchers have shown that a new nano-engineered gel inhibits the formation of scar tissue at the injury site and enables the severed spinal cord fibers to regenerate and grow.
The world?s top laser experts will gather in Kissimmee, FL, to share innovations in lasers and emerging technologies at the 28th Annual Scientific Conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS).
Researchers from the Nano Machine Center at the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA have developed a novel type of nanomachine that can capture and store anticancer drugs inside tiny pores and release them into cancer cells in response to light.
For quite some time, DNA, the stuff our genes are made of, has also been considered the building material of choice for nanoscale objects. A team in Germany has now made a dodecahedron (a geometric shape with twelve surfaces) from DNA building blocks.
Doctors' quest to see what is happening inside a living body has been hampered by the limits on detecting tiny components of internal structures and events. Now a team of Stanford University School of Medicine researchers has developed a new type of imaging system that can illuminate tumors in living subjects-getting pictures with a precision of nearly one-trillionth of a meter.
Engineers have created the first 'active matrix' display using a new class of transparent transistors and circuits, a step toward realizing applications such as e-paper, flexible color monitors and 'heads-up' displays in car windshields.
UC Santa Barbara will host special education activities and exhibits, designed to educate and engage the local Santa Barbara community in the growing fields of nanoscale science and nanotechnologies, on Saturday, April 5, from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m
