Biomedical engineers have announced pre-clinical test results demonstrating the feasibility of a smart particle insulin release system that detects spikes in glucose or blood sugar levels and releases insulin to counteract them.
Attention scientific researchers: SNM invites you to present your molecular imaging studies - especially those involving non-radioactive molecular imaging techniques and agents - at the society's 55th Annual Meeting June 14â??18, 2008, in New Orleans.
MAGNA (immuno gene therapy with magnetic nanoparticles) has been founded to provide evidence for the usefulness of therapeutic tumor vaccination by the Magnetofection technology in a clinical study in cats with fibrosarcoma.
Purdue University's Network for Computational Nanotechnology has received a five-year, $18.25 million grant from the National Science Foundation to support the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative with expanded capabilities and services for computer simulations.
The foresight study on biomedical sensors has addressed different approaches with future use of biomedical sensors in the health care sector, like: How will biomedical sensors shape the healthcare systems of the future?
The emission of CO2 is a present threat for the global climate. Storage of the greenhouse gas in empty gas fields and aquifers could be a solution. To store CO2 underground it should be captured first. Nanostructured membranes have the potential of doing that. The NANOGLOWA nanotechnology project wants to turn this potential into reality.
Scientists in India are reporting an advance toward discovering a Holy Grail of the illumination industry - a white LED, a light-emitting diode that produces pure white light suitable for interior lighting of homes, offices and other buildings.
A new type of membrane has been internationally patented by researchers in Norway. The membrane is made from a plastic material that has been structured by means of nanotechnology. It catches CO2 while other waste gases pass freely.
