A collaborative team comprised of Center for Nanoscale Materials users from the University of Chicago, Argonne's Materials Science Division, and the CNM NanoBio Interfaces Group is studying ways to enlist nanoparticles to treat brain cancer. This nano-bio technology may eventually provide an alternative form of therapy that targets only cancer cells and does not affect normal living tissue.
At the second international conference of the Nanodermatology Society (NDS) clinicians, scientists, members of industry, and policy makers gathered in San Diego, California on March 16th 2012 to review and discuss recent advances in nanotechnology and potential pitfalls as they pertain to dermatology.
The team of Professor Keon Jae Lee from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, KAIST, has developed new forms of low cost, large-area nanogenerator technology using the piezoelectric ceramic nanoparticles.
The University of Arkansas at Little Rock - has opened its new home for the Center for Integrative Nanotechnology Sciences. The five-story, $15 million building is a working symbol of Arkansas' major stake in atomic-sized technology that will make a giant difference to the future of central Little Rock.
The International Helmholtz Research School NANONET is a structured doctoral program which promotes the education of the next generation of scientists in molecular electronics while at the same time striving to advance this field of research.
Researchers led by Raffaele Mezzenga, a professor in Food and Soft Materials Science, have created a new nanocomposite made of graphene and protein fibrils: a special paper, which combines the best features of both components.
The potential of nanotechnology to assist in the eradication of such diseases is widely acknowledged, and this series of two webinars gives participants a unique opportunity to find out how nanotechnologies can help in this fight.
With dimensions measuring billionths of a meter, nanoparticles are way too small to see with the naked eye. Yet it is becoming possible for today's scientists not only to see them, but also to look inside at how the atoms are arranged in three dimensions using a technique called nanocrystallography.
