Three Johns Hopkins University researchers affiliated with the Institute for NanoBioTechnology hope to gain some insight by studying the ability of nanometals to access lung tissues, their potential to trigger pro-inflammatory reactions by cells that line the lung airways, and even the extent to which workers are exposed in a nanomaterials manufacturing setting.
Seven pioneering scientists who have transformed human knowledge in the fields of nanoscience, neuroscience and astrophysics will receive the first Kavli Prize awarded by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.
The Honourable Jim Prentice, Minister of Industry, today announced federal government support for the research and development of next-generation nanotechnology-based coatings for the multinational Joint Strike Fighter program.
Dr. Marcus Conrad of the Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology and Tumor Genetics at the Helmholtz Zentrum Munich has decrypted the molecular mechanism through which the death of cells is caused by oxidative stress.
According to a new paper in the latest issue of Optics Express, the Optical Society's open-access journal, certain materials underneath an invisibility cloak would allow invisible objects be seen again.
Electrons have something in common with people: the more information they acquire about their setting, the more they become aware of their individuality and the more belonging to a group loses its importance. As a result, the coherent harmony that binds the electrons into a fixed relationship with their environment is lost.
Researchers at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT today announced that they have been chosen to receive a six-year, $86M grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to identify and develop molecular tools known as 'small molecules', which can probe the proteins, signaling pathways and cellular processes that are crucial to human health and disease.
Using two abundant and relatively inexpensive elements, Boston College chemists have produced nanonets, a flexible webbing of nano-scale wires that multiplies surface area critical to improving the performance of the wires in electronics and energy applications.
Using a novel technique, medical and engineering researchers at Stanford University have discovered a vulnerable step in the virus? reproduction process that in lab testing could be effectively targeted with an obsolete antihistamine.
