At a visit this morning to the University laboratories where the material's remarkable properties were first demonstrated, the Chancellor laid out his plans for the creation of a Graphene Global Research and Technology Hub to commercialise graphene, part of almost GBP 200m investment into science.
A University of Arkansas researcher has patented a process that reduces the time it takes to perform DNA analysis from hours to minutes. This development could contribute to many areas of health care and law enforcement, including diagnosing and treating disease, developing and testing new vaccines and forensic identification.
The White House announced that Lan Yang, PhD, assistant professor of electrical and systems engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science of Washington University in St. Louis has been named a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).
A new review published in WIREs Nanomedicine and Nanobiotechnology explores how nanotechnology may be used to develop safer breast implants as an alternative to silicone rubber, minimizing health complications.
The focus of the project cluster is on continuing the development of Nanoimprint Lithography (NIL) in the scope of eight tangible research projects. PROFACTOR, as the coordinator, will guide the combined forces of all research institutes in the country involved in NIL research and a number of enterprises interested in Nanoimprint Lithography applications.
Mansoor Amiji, Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Northeastern University, has designed a nano-cocktail that targets multi-drug resistant tumors with remarkable accuracy and makes chemotherapy more efficient.
Findings by researchers at the RIKEN Advanced Science Institute and their colleagues at Tohoku University and in the Netherlands have resolved a long-standing debate over the structure of water molecules at the water surface.
Theoretical physicists of the University of Innsbruck have formulated a new concept to engineer exotic, so-called topological states of matter in quantum mechanical many-body systems. They linked concepts of quantum optics and condensed matter physics and show a direction to build a quantum computer which is immune against perturbations.
