Researchers believe that the trick to gaining access to the pernicious cellular masses is to give the nanoparticles a new look - and that dressing to impress will be able to get them past the tumor's biological bouncers.
Plants and trees soak up water in the soil by letting it vaporize through pores in the leaves. Scientists have now taken this principle to develop a sweat sensor through which the sweat itself flows at a steady rate and is analyzed.
The team of computer scientists and electrical engineers has detailed one of the first complete systems to encode, store and retrieve digital data using DNA molecules, which can store information millions of times more compactly than current archival technologies.
Researchers have demonstrated a new approach to modifying the light absorption and stretchability of atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) materials by surface topographic engineering using only mechanical strain.
