The EDGE-SUNY CNSE partnership is designed to accelerate the attraction of next-generation 450mm computer chip manufacturing to the Mohawk Valley by deploying Governor Andrew Cuomo's publicly-led and publicly-managed public-private partnership model that he first introduced with the CNSE Global 450mm Consortium (G450C).
Scientists have moved liquid droplets using long chemical gradients formed on graphene. The change in concentration of either fluorine or oxygen formed using a simple plasma-based process either pushes or pulls droplets of water or nerve agent simulant across the surface. This new achievement offers potential applications ranging from electronics to mechanical resonators to bio/chemical sensors.
An international team of researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands is advancing a novel form of nanopore technology for DNA sequencing as a result of a $2.47 million grant awarded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The award is the largest of the National Human Genome Research Institute's most recent $17 million initiative to support development of innovative technologies with the potential to dramatically reduce the cost of DNA sequencing, so that sequencing an individual's genome can become a routine part of medical research and health care.
This webinar demonstrates important new insights into graphene physics using the combination of PeakForce KPFM and the GloveBox Integrated System with guest speaker Aravind Vijayaraghavan from the University of Manchester's National Graphene Institute.
Researchers have used airbrushing techniques to grow vertically aligned carbon nanofibers on several different metal substrates, opening the door for incorporating these nanofibers into gene delivery devices, sensors, batteries and other technologies.
Whether it's the Ebola virus or Sarin and Ricin, a key to responding to chemical or biological attacks is having effective antidotes at the ready. To accelerate the development of new therapies, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center's Institute for Regenerative Medicine is leading a unique $24 million federally funded project to develop a 'body on a chip' that will be used to develop these countermeasures.
Researchers report a highly versatile and one-pot microwave route to the mass production of three-dimensional graphene-carbon nanotube-iron oxide nanostructures for the efficient removal of arsenic from contaminated water.
By binding multiple molecules of a common leukemia drug with nanodiamonds, scientists from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) managed to boost the delivery of the drug to leukemic cells and retain the drug within the cells to combat the cancer.
UMass Amherst polymer scientist Murugappan Muthukumar receives a grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute to find new ways to control the process of reading the precise order of nucleotides in DNA chains as they pass through a nanopore.
Carbon nanotubes' potential as drug-carrier systems and sensors for diagnosis and therapy at a cellular level was the focus of the EU-funded project CARBIO ('Multi-functional carbon nanotubes for biomedical applications').
Researchers at North Carolina State University have created a new compound that can be integrated into silicon chips and is a dilute magnetic semiconductor -- meaning that it could be used to make "spintronic" devices, which rely on magnetic force to operate, rather than electrical currents.
'Nanobiomaterials: Development and Applications' gives you a broad, interdisciplinary view of current developments as well as new findings and applications in bionanomaterials. The book brings together the work of international contributors who are actively engaged at the forefront of research in their respective disciplines.
