The Knowledge Foundation announced today that more than 100 organizations from around the world will participate in the 14th Biodetection Technologies conference to be held in Baltimore, MD from June 25-26, 2009.
More than 400 people were in attendance as the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany hosted a Job Fair to assist M+W Zander in building its project management team to support the construction of GlobalFoundries' computer chip manufacturing facility in Malta.
Scientists have identified for the first time a mechanism by which nanoparticles cause lung damage and have demonstrated that it can be combated by blocking the process involved, taking a step toward addressing the growing concerns over the safety of nanotechnology.
Engineers from the University of Pennsylvania, Sandia National Laboratories and Rice University have demonstrated the formation of interconnected carbon nanostructures on graphene substrate in a simple assembly process that involves heating few-layer graphene sheets to sublimation using electric current that may eventually lead to a new paradigm for building integrated carbon-based devices.
Colorado State University scientists this month received a $2.7 million National Science Foundation grant to train graduate students on cutting-edge research while also preparing them to share their knowledge with K-12 teachers and industry.
The "Technology Guide: Principles - Applications - Trends" can provide sound assistance. It contains over a hundred articles in which internationally renowned experts give clear descriptions of all the main fields of technology.
Scientists in Israel have identified the key substances in exhaled breath associated with healthy and diseased kidneys - raising expectations, they say, for development of long-sought diagnostic and screening tests that literally sniff out chronic renal failure in its earliest and most treatable stages.
SAFENANO, the UK's premier resource on Nanotechnology Health and Safety, is co-hosting a Pre-Conference workshop on Nanotechnology Risk Management at the forthcoming NanoMaterials '09 conference in Bonn, Germany. Limited spaces are still available for those yet to register.
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) now offers a new free service to help researchers, teachers and students keep up-to-date with scientific literature on the web, especially when researching unfamiliar molecules.
